Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Polymer-based electrode materials have garnered significant attention in the field of energy storage systems due to their versatile properties and potential for addressing the limitations of conventional electrode materials. This Special Issue encapsulates the current progress of polymer-based electrodes, encompassing their design, synthetic methods, and applications in various energy storage devices, such as batteries and supercapacitors. The aim of this Special Issue is to report and explore the diverse range of polymers employed in electrode fabrication, highlighting their unique characteristics, structural designs, and electrochemical performance. Additionally, this Special Issue also aims to delineate the critical factors influencing the performance of polymer-based electrodes, including conductivity, stability, and flexibility, as well as strategies for enhancing electrochemical performance through novel polymer composite structures, morphologies, and functionalization techniques. This Special Issue underscores the challenges and future perspectives in the development of polymer-based electrode materials, emphasizing the need for continued research to advance their performance, scalability, and commercial viability in next-generation energy storage technologies. Original research articles and review papers related to polymer-based electrodes are welcome in this Special Issue.

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. Polymers 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.
