Membranes used for anion exchange membrane (AEM) fuel cells and electrolyzers are the focus of renewed attention due to their use in non-platinum group metal (PGM) catalysts and, therefore, their lower cost compared to other fuel cells and electrolyzers. For AEMs to become viable options, cathode ionomer stability and anode catalyst activity must be investigated. Low-cost material solutions to address current issues to develop complete gas diffusion electrode (GDEs) are desired. These solutions aim to be at the cutting edge of advanced materials research and are foreseen to contribute to breakthrough advances for AEM fuel cells and electrolyzers. The expected results will contribute to high-level scientific publications and have a high impact on society.
This Special Issue on “Anion Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells and Electrolyzers” of the journal Membranes seeks contributions to assess the state of the art and future developments in the field of AEMFCs. Topics include, but are not limited to, anion exchange membrane synthesis, non-PGM catalysts for gas diffusion electrode production, mass transport phenomena, module and reactor design, membrane reactors, novel applications, and demonstration efforts and industrial exploitation. Authors are invited to submit their latest results; both original papers and reviews are welcome.

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.
