Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The field of electrochemical energy storage, encompassing batteries, has witnessed remarkable progress and growth over recent years due to advancements in materials, design, and production techniques. This progress has resulted in greater energy density, longer battery life, and faster charging capabilities. Despite this success, the industry still faces numerous challenges that need to be overcome in order to achieve further growth and wider adoption. A pressing challenge is a demand for higher energy density to accommodate the growing requirement for portable and electric devices, and another challenge is to make batteries safer, more environmentally conscious, and cost-efficient.

New materials are being developed to achieve these goals, including lithium–sulfur batteries, lithium-ion batteries, fuel cells, sodium-ion batteries, solid-state batteries, metal–air batteries, and supercapacitors with improved electrodes and electrolytes. These innovations have the potential to revolutionize the energy storage industry and support the transition to more sustainable energy solutions. Research can be approached through various methods and techniques, including material synthesis and characterization, device fabrication, testing and analytics, modeling and simulation. Effective research on new electrochemical energy storage materials will require an interdisciplinary approach and the integration of various scientific and engineering fields, such as chemistry, physics, materials science, electrical engineering, software engineering, and various other related fields.

This Special Issue aims to create advances the in research and development of new electrochemical energy storage materials. Topics include, but are not limited to, synthesis, characterization, analysis, simulation and application from a perspective of electrochemistry and beyond. Full articles, short communications, and reviews are all 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. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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).
