Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the field of hybrid electrode materials, phosphate-based compounds are important candidates for energy storage, owing to their open framework-like geometry with outstanding electrochemical activity and structural stability due to the presence of P–O covalent bonds. One of the major advantages of metal phosphates is their zeolite structure built from polyhedral ions, which can be easily tuned for fast electronic and ionic transport. Moreover, the existence of infinite tunnel-type networks of ions linked together with oxygen atoms provides plentiful active sites for redox reactions to occur with good reversibility. Moreover, the different transition metal phosphates (binary or ternary metal phosphates) have different modified surface architectures to improve the number of electrochemically active sites. This enhances the electronic behavior of the active electrode material, which further boosts the reaction kinetics with electrolyte ions by overcoming the weaknesses of individual components during electrochemical activities. This hybrid approach achieves a superior performance, which is constrained by using individuals.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Crystals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
