Rechargeable batteries are widely used as power sources in portable electrical devices, electric vehicles, grid storage stations, etc. However, high-performance rechargeable batteries with a high safety, large energy density, long cycling life, and quick charge rate are still required. As a necessary component in the rechargeable batteries (e.g., binder, separator, solid-state electrolytes, or coating layer on the active electrode particle), polymers play an important role in improving battery performance. This Special Issue focuses on the recent advances in the development or applications of novel polymer materials for high-performance rechargeable batteries ,such as lithium-ion batteries, zinc-ion batteries and supercapacitors. In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the abovementioned themes.
We are looking forward to receiving your contributions.

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.
