Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent decades, the need for the development of alternative energy conversion and storage systems has increased dramatically due to rapid global economic growth, environmental issues, and the depletion of fossil fuels. Light and electricity are two types of pollution-free clean energy that are being increasingly studied by scholars.

The latest trends in photoelectric functional materials and device research include photoelectrocatalysis materials, solar cells, solar photocatalytic degradation, energy storage devices (batteries and electrochemical supercapacitors), and the study of these materials’ synthesis, properties, and applications.

For this Special Issue, we invite authors to submit research articles or reviews on the broad range of topics listed above.

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.
