One of the greatest challenges of our time has been to comply with the increasing energy demand of our society. At the same time, the finite supply of fossil fuels and the detrimental accumulation of pollutants in the environment highlight the urgency for the development of innovative technologies to restrict our ecological footprint. Recent research efforts have focused on developments of new materials with intriguing physical and chemical properties, so as to provide opportunities to address these challenges.
This Special Issue showcases state-of-the-art research as well as advanced concepts regarding (organic and inorganic) novel materials and nanomaterials for applications in the field of energy and sustainability. This Special Issue seeks original contributions concerning the design, modelling, synthesis and chemical–physical characterization of new functional materials (ranging from small molecules to macromolecules), aiming at the production and storage of energy, environmental sustainability and energy effectiveness in optoelectronic devices.
We would like to invite you to submit full papers, communications or reviews related to emerging materials and nanomaterials and their applications to this Special Issue.

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). 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.
