The energy crisis and rapid global pollution are significant challenges worldwide. The proliferation of modern industries has led to a substantial increase in the demand for energy due to the extensive growth of electronic devices. To address these issues, renewable energy and electrochemical energy conversion have emerged as highly effective technologies for energy storage. Hydrogen, known for its high energy density, is a promising energy source, and one method of producing it is through electrochemical water splitting using electrocatalysts. Supercapacitors are widely utilized for electrical energy storage and have garnered significant attention due to their exceptional advantages, including remarkable rate capabilities, high power densities, and long cycling lifetimes.
The employed electrocatalysts and electrode materials play crucial roles in facilitating improved electrochemical reactions. Porous materials possess high surface areas and porosities, making them particularly appealing. Factors such as pore size distribution, pore size, and pore connectivity significantly impact the architecture and microstructure of porous materials, thereby influencing their electrochemical performance. Consequently, the development of novel high-performance porous materials for electrodes is of utmost importance.
This Special Issue of Micromachines aims to explore the theme of "Porous Materials for Water Splitting and Supercapacitors." It will cover advancements in the design and development of porous materials, encompassing porous carbons, MOFs, COFs, transition metal oxides/sulfides, and other related materials.

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. Micromachines 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.
