Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Lithium metal anodes are currently gaining attention as a next-generation anode material due to their high theoretical capacity. In particular, their theoretical capacity (3860 mAh g−1) of approximately 10 times that of commercialized graphite anodes holds the promise of revolutionizing next-generation batteries. However, lithium metal, unlike graphite, is a hostless material, which poses many challenges as its surface undergoes dynamic changes during charge and discharge processes. The formation of dendrites and complex surface reactions hinder the Coulombic efficiency and cycling performance. Numerous studies have been conducted to overcome these issues, but further research is still needed. Therefore, this Special Issue is designed to focus on advances in lithium metal anodes for liquid and solid electrolyte-based lithium batteries. Researchers are invited to submit their original research in addition to review and perspective articles for this Special Issue. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the fundamental study, synthesis, and analysis of lithium metal anodes in liquid and solid electrolyte systems.

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.
