Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, 

Polymers have played important roles in modifying electrode materials in the field of secondary batteries, electrocatalysis, bioelectronics and electrochemical sensors, in which the surface state of electrode materials is critical for their performances. For example, in lithium-ion batteries, the unprotected electrode materials always suffer from aggressive electrochemical driving forces during cycling, leading to a rapid capacity decay and serious safety issues. Polymer-modification strategies have been proved to be effective to suppress undesired surface side reactions and maintain electrode reactivity. In addition, polymer modifications on electrode materials also promote product selectivity in electrocatalysis and enhance surface adhesion in bioelectronic devices on different tissues. In general, the designable chemical and mechanical properties of polymer modifications make electrode materials more suitable for their applications. 

The aim of this Special Issue is to highlight the progress and fundamental aspects in polymer-modified electrode materials, as well as their synthesis, characterization, properties, and applications. Topics covering but not limited to the following aspects of polymer modifications and related technologies are highly welcome: 

  • Design and analysis of polymer-modified electrode materials
  • Novel procedures for polymer coating
  • Theory and simulation for polymer modifications
  • Polymer-based artificial CEI/SEI film
  • Novel polymer electrodes, binders and additives.

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. 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.
