Nowadays, electrochemical energy storage and conversion devices are fundamental components of the green transition towards a more sustainable and environmentally friendly society independent from fossil fuels. Batteries, ultra-capacitors and fuel cells are more and more applied in the transport sector and in stationary energy production and storage and their diffusion will be further stimulated by the uneven geographical distribution of fossil fuels and by the needs of many countries to reach
On the other hand, catalysis has a wide range of high industrial impact applications, ranging from the production of polymers to the treatment of noxious emissions. In the energy field, the most evident use is in fuel cell electrodes but catalytic materials are also applied for the conversion of carbon dioxide or biogenic streams to synthetic fuels and for the electrochemical or photo assisted splitting of water to produce hydrogen.
Therefore, the aim of this Special Issue is to reveal insights into the materials used for electrochemical energy storage and conversion devices and for catalysis applied to the energy field. The intended scope of the selected publications is to shed light on the complex relationship between the crystal structure and morphology and the properties of the materials that determine the final performances of the devices where they are applied.
We invite interested authors to submit their original experimental, theoretical and review papers focusing on the subject for inclusion in this Special Issue.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com 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.
