Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Electrochemical capacitor technology has seen rapid development in recent years due to the advent of various organic and inorganic materials that includes nanostructured carbons, conducting polymers, MXenes, and metal oxides. Charge storage mechanisms at the electrode/electrolyte interface of these materials are associated with ion adsorption and redox reactions resulting in electrical double layer formation and pseudocapacitance, respectively. Additionally, synthesis methodologies involving production of nanomaterials also govern the textural properties, morphology, and surface functionalities, which have a profound effect in enhancing the charge storage properties.

This Special Issue, entitled “Nanomaterials Relating to Charge Storage in Electrochemical Capacitors” was proposed for the international journal Energies, an SSCI and SCIE journal (2017 IF = 2.676), to further improve our understanding of the role of nanomaterials and the underlying charge storage mechanisms in electrochemical capacitors. This Special Issue mainly covers original research and studies related to the abovementioned topics, including, but not limited to, nanomaterials development of high-voltage electrical double layer capacitors, pseudocapacitors, hybrid capacitors, and all solid-state capacitors. Papers selected for this Special Issue are subject to a rigorous peer review procedure with the aim of rapid and wide dissemination of research results, developments, and applications.

I am writing to invite you to submit your original work to this Special Issue. I look forward to reading about your outstanding research.

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 papers will be 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. Energies 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 2000 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.
