Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Sharing the merits of zero emissions, high power density and rapid startup, proton exchange membrane fuel cell is regarded as the most promising candidate for next-generation power sources for transportation and portable applications.

Designing a cost-effective, high-performance proton exchange membrane fuel cell requires the proper organization of the transport of the reactants of hydrogen and oxygen, the product of water, and the generated heat. This Special Issue aims to provide a platform to exchange the recent progress on water–thermal management and gas (especially hydrogen) detection technologies for proton exchange membrane fuel cells. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following: water transport mechanism, heat transport mechanism, membrane design and fabrication, transport property measurement, and novel hydrogen detection technology. In this Special Issue, both original research articles and reviews are welcome.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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. Membranes 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 2700 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.
