Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In order to meet the growing demand for energy storage and conversion, there is a dire need to enhance the energy and power density of electrochemical energy storage devices. Porous carbon is a promising anode material, as it possesses the advantages of low cost, high efficiency, long lifetime, and multifunctionality. By constructing a three-dimensional hierarchical structure of porous carbon electrode, the transport process of ions can be optimized to achieve satisfied magnification performance. Moreover, porous carbon can also be employed as effective carriers to receive diverse guest components in multi-active sites, thereby allowing for the full utilization of high specific capacity of active substances; additionally, the stabilizing effect of carbon-based materials help to obtain a negative electrode material endowed with both high capacity and stability.

This Special Issue of Nanomaterials invites submissions of research papers and review articles that address the application of novel carbon materials in advanced energy storage technologies including, but not limited to, lithium/sodium/potassium/zinc/calcium ion battery, lithium-sulfur battery, zinc-iodine battery, aqueous supercapacitors, organic supercapacitors and solid electrolyte supercapacitor.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Nanomaterials 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 2900 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.
