Manuscript Submission Deadline 05 December 2022

The sustainable development of human society is facing great challenges due to various worldwide energy and environmental problems such as global warming, increasing energy consumption and serious environmental pollution. Although scholars have made great efforts to solve these problems, such as looking for clean energy (solar energy, wind energy, nuclear energy, etc.), developing efficient energy storage devices (batteries, super capacitors), exploring new technology of pollution purification, using environmentally friendly products instead of over-exploiting natural resources and causing serious pollution, etc., it is urgent to further study the development of new high-performance nanomaterials in energy and environment related fields. Energy nanomaterials used for the energy storage and conversion, such as batteries, supercapacitors, fuel cells, solar cell, photocatalysis/electrocatalysis etc. Environmental nanomaterials used for the pollutant elimination and reuse, such as environmental photocatalysis /electrocatalysis, adsorbing materials, recyclable materials, membrane materials, etc. Energy and environmental nanomaterials include, but are not limited to, carbon materials, phosphorus materials, metal oxide, perovskite materials, layered materials such as MoS2, WTe2, LDH, clay, etc.

Recognizing the complexity of issues and challenges related to energy and environmental nanomaterials, this Research Topic has broad objectives and therefore particularly welcomes interdisciplinary experimental and theoretical work across basic science and engineering disciplines. These areas include, but are not limited to, nanomaterials and their composites in energy and environmental applications.

• Novel lithium-ion battery electrode nanomaterials and high-performance supercapacitor electrode nanomaterials and performance;
• Photocatalysis and electrocatalysis;
• Fuel cell electrode nanomaterials and solar cell electrode nanomaterials and performance;
• Preparation of porous environmental catalytic materials and their applications in automobile exhaust treatment, indoor air purification, water pollution treatment and other environment-related directions;
• Nanomaterials for biological drugs, including biocatalyst, drug storage and sustained-release materials, bactericidal materials, etc.;
• Functional nanomaterials: including luminescent materials, magnetic materials, anticorrosive materials, membrane materials, etc.;
• Simulation and calculation of nanomaterials.

Keywords: Nanomaterials, Energy, Environment, Catalysis, Batteries, Photochemistry, Electrochemistry, Water treatment


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
