Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent decades, solid-state energy conversion devices, such as fuel cells, batteries, and supercapacitors, have garnered significant attention as sustainable energy sources for both mobile and stationary power applications. To advance these devices, developing their high electrochemical performance (i.e., high gravimetric/volumetric energy density) and enhancing their performance durability are key issues that require to be addressed at the utmost. To this end, researchers are exploring several strategies, including developing new membranes and membrane interfaces, engineering novel membrane fabrication processes, and conducting computational/theoretical studies to understand the underlying mechanisms of electrochemical physics. These efforts can have a profound impact on the development of next-generation energy applications.

In light of the above, this Special Issue invites contributors to share their novel research progress that can aid in improving the electrochemical performance of solid-state energy device applications.

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.
