New Themed Issue – Organic Materials for Energy Conversion and Storage

We are delighted to highlight the latest Sustainable Energy & Fuels themed issue on Organic Materials for Energy Conversion and Storage.

Guest Edited by Emilio Palomares (ICIQ and ICREA) and Juan Luis Delgado (Ikerbasque and Polymat), this issue showcases studies on the recent progress and challenges in the field of organic, inorganic and hybrid materials for energy conversion. This includes advances in photovoltaics, solar to fuels conversion, and catalysis for sustainable energy applications. You can read our Editorial introducing this issue here.

In addition to the Open Access articles in this issue, all articles are free to access until 28th February.

Below is a small selection of some of the articles featured in the issue:
