Topical Collection Information

Dear Colleagues,

The development of advanced functional materials is one of the current challenges for the efficient production and storage of renewable energy. Solar energy could be used to produce electrical energy or fuels, such as hydrogen and hydrocarbon from water and carbon dioxide, respectively. Hydrogen is also the key to energy transition and achieving the decarbonization goals.

This Collection is open to original research articles, as well as review papers, which help researchers worldwide to understand the latest trends and progress in nanomaterials for different applications, such as solar cell, hydrogen production and fuel cells, batteries and supercapacitors, photo-electrochemical water splitting, etc.

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 collection 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 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.
