Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The growing human population and modern lifestyles have increased the energy demand significantly. This has led to the excessive use fossil fuels, which has serious adverse effects on the environment, highlighting the need for renewable resources. However, renewable resources are intermittent in nature; hence, energy storage devices such as batteries and supercapacitors are used to store electrical charges. Batteries and supercapacitors are complimentary devices in terms of energy density and power density, respectively. Hence, advancement in supercapacitors is essential and this Special Issue focuses on the recent advancements in supercapacitors.

We invite authors to contribute an article on the following topics:

  • Novel electrode materials for symmetric supercapacitors;
  • Novel electrode materials for asymmetric supercapacitors;
  • Aqueous and non-aqueous supercapacitors;
  • Electrolytes for supercapacitors;
  • Full cell device designs and their performance evaluation;
  • Solid-state and flexible supercapacitor devices.

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. Symmetry is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs).
