Advanced Materials and Nanotechnology for Sustainable Energy Development


Boosted by the rapid economic development of the growing world population, the global energy demand is expected to double by 2050 and triple by 2100. How to satisfy this enormous energy demand is the most pressing challenge facing society today. Scientists and engineers are needed not only to find more efficient ways of producing, refining, and using fossil fuels, but also to develop renewable energy solutions. Advanced materials and technology have enormous potential to change society as they lead to more efficient energy production, storage, and transmission; better access to clean water; more effective pollution reduction and prevention; and stronger, lighter materials.

The Journal of Nanotechnology is a peer-reviewed, open access journal that publishes original research articles as well as review articles in all areas of nanoscience and nanotechnology into a single and unique reference source. With an open access policy, Journal of Nanotechnology publishes high quality and original full research articles of important new scientific and technological findings, timely state-of-the-art reviews, and current scientific research in the areas relevant to nanoscience and nanotechnology.

We invite authors to submit original research and review articles focused on the utilization of advanced materials and technology for sustainable energy development.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Design, synthesis, investigation, and application of nanoscale materials
  • Fabrication and processing of advanced devices for energy harvest
  • Advanced technology and engineering design to combine renewable energy with the existing energy and chemical infrastructure
  • New strategy and policy for sustainable carbon cycle
  • Potential solution for energy crisis induced environmental, health, and safety issues
  • Utilization of CO2 as feedstock for energy production
  • Artificial photosynthesis
  • Catalysis and sustainable development
  • Other scientific fields of inquiry such as physics, chemical process, and new energy resources
