Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Among the main advances in nanotechnology, those concerning the sustainability of our planet presently assume crucial importance, with great prominence for the methods of production and storage energy that are, in fact, able to assure a healthy way of living for humans.

Contributions from nanotechnology for improving the efficiency of energy generation, or to develop new methods of using and storing energy, can represent real breakthroughs for changing the conventional technologies currently used in these fields. Interesting processes that can benefit from nanotechnology achievements are being developed to produce more cost-effective energy. They are prone to include nanostructures for improving electricity generation, reducing power losses, hydrogen generation and storage, greenhouse gas conversion, energy harvesting, green synthetic fuels, radiation-to-steam conversion, plasma catalysis, among others; these are opportunities for the appearance of innovative devices developed by new synthetic routes to come into play, presenting novel properties.

This Special Issue will cover relevant advances in these applied nanoscience subjects devoted to the direct or indirect mitigation of atmospheric greenhouse gases. Those applications converging on two or more of the keywords included in the list will be preferentially selected.

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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
