We are delighted to introduce a new themed online collection on the application of nanomaterials for energy conversion and storage. This collection focuses on the use of advanced strategies such as rational size/facet control, structural/defect engineering, atomic modification, and construction of nanohybrids that can regulate the geometric and/or electronic property of the active sites to improve the performance of nanomaterials toward energy conversion and storage.
