Blog Post created by Mariana Fraga on Mar 7, 2017

We have been invited by Dr. Aloysius Hepp (Elsevier Consulting Editor for S&T Books, focusing on Materials for Energy Conversion and Storage) to edit a book titled: “Emerging Materials for Energy Conversion and Storage”. The purpose of this book is to present the state-of-art of emerging materials for energy conversion technologies (solar cells and fuel cells) and energy storage technologies (batteries, supercapacitors and hydrogen storage).


The book will be organized into five (5) Primary Sections, namely:


(1) Emerging materials for solar cell and photovoltaic applications,


(2) Emerging materials for fuel cell applications,


(3) Emerging materials for battery electrode applications,


(4) Emerging materials for supercapacitor applications, and


(5) Emerging materials for hydrogen storage applications,


which aiming to cover aspects of fundamentals, functionalities, challenges and prospects of different classes of emerging materials, such as but not limited to, wide bandgap semiconductors, oxides, carbon-based nanostructures, advanced ceramics, chalcogenide nanostructures, and flexible organic electronics nanomaterials, for energy conversion and storage applications. The targeted audiences of this edited book are postgraduates, researchers, and practicing engineers working in this area. This edited book will be published by ELSEVIER and it is expected to be fully published in 2018.

If you are interested in contributing to this edited book, please send an email to with your chapter proposal (abstract with maximum 300 words) up to March 25, 2017. Authors of accepted abstracts will be invited to submit the full chapters by August 25, 2017. Length of each chapter is about 10,000 words. No. of illustrations of each chapter are between 5 to 7 only. Full chapter submission must be made through an on-line submission system that will be announced later. Only submissions in Word format will be considered. All submitted chapters will be reviewed by 2 or more reviewers.
