Increasingly severe environmental and energy challenges have led to an urgent demand for green and efficient energy storage systems. Various energy storage technologies, including commercialized lithium-ion batteries (LIBs), capacitors, and especially fuel cells, play critical roles in portable electronic devices in vehicles. Therefore, research on new electrode materials with a reduced cost, improved safety, and high-energy density is crucial to satisfy the ever-growing demand for this technology. Symmetric electrodes have recently become a research focus because they employ the same active materials as both cathodes and anodes in energy storage systems, leading to a reduced manufacturing cost and a simplified fabrication process. Most importantly, this feature also endows symmetric energy storage systems with improved safety, a longer lifetime, and the ability to charge in both directions. For this Special Issue, we are interested in research on different symmetric electrodes based on the applications of symmetric electrodes in different energy storage electrochemical systems. Papers considering the possibility of mass production are also encouraged. This Special Issue welcomes all contributions on the use of symmetry in applications of the electrochemical process in technologies such as lithium-ion batteries, capacitors, fuel cells, etc.

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. 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). 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.
