Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue will focus on the aspects of low-dimensional inorganic nanomaterials relevant to physical and chemical bases of materials science, magnetism in nanocomposite materials, machine-learning phase prediction for new materials, deep-learning analysis, IoT-synthesized nanomaterials, big data analysis for complicated nanomaterials, structure–property relationships, and nanostructures and nanotechnologies. In particular, studies on multi-functional nanoalloys, magnetic memory effect in nanodevices, quantum and optical confined effects, superconductivity, and high-entropy alloys will be encouraged for this Special Issue.

Prof. Dr. ShengYun Wu
Guest Editor

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.

The global energy crisis and environmental problems are becoming increasingly serious. It is now urgent to vigorously develop an efficient energy storage system. Lithium-sulfur batteries (LSBs) are considered to be one of the most promising candidates for next-generation energy storage systems due to their high energy density. Sulfur is abundant on Earth, low-cost, and environmentally friendly, which is consistent with the characteristics of new clean energy. Although LSBs possess numerous advantages, they still suffer from numerous problems such as the dissolution and diffusion of sulfur intermediate products during the discharge process, the expansion of the electrode volume, and so on, which severely limit their further development. Graphene is a two-dimensional crystal material with a single atomic layer thickness and honeycomb bonding structure formed by sp2 hybridization of carbon atoms. Since its discovery in 2004, graphene has attracted worldwide attention due to its excellent physical and chemical properties. Herein, this review summarizes the latest developments in graphene frameworks, heteroatom-modified graphene, and graphene composite frameworks in sulfur cathodes. Moreover, the challenges and future development of graphene-based sulfur cathodes are also discussed. Full article
