Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Hydrogen has gained significant attention as a potential sustainable energy carrier due to its ability to produce energy through fuel cells, combustion engines, and other processes without generating harmful emissions. However, the widespread use of hydrogen as an energy carrier is currently limited by the lack of efficient and cost-effective storage methods. Metallic materials have been proposed as one of the most promising hydrogen storage materials due to their high gravimetric and volumetric hydrogen storage capacities. Despite significant progress in this field, challenges such as sluggish kinetics, poor reversibility, and high costs remain.This Special Issue aims to present the latest advances in the investigation of metallic materials for hydrogen storage. 

The scope of this Special Issue includes, but is not limited to, the recent advances in the science and technology of (i) metallic compounds (i.e., metal hydrides), (ii) complex metallic hydrides (i.e., borohydrides, amines and imides) and (iii) metallic catalysts for liquid organic hydrogen carriers (LOHC). This Special Issue provides a platform for researchers to share their latest findings and insights on metallic materials for hydrogen storage. The contributions to this Special Issue are expected to advance our understanding of the fundamental principles governing the hydrogen storage properties of metallic materials and accelerate the development of efficient and cost-effective hydrogen storage technologies. We invite researchers in the field to submit their work to this Special Issue and we look forward to a fruitful exchange of knowledge and ideas.

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. Metals 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 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.
