Themed Collection: “Nanomaterials for Solar Energy Conversion” from Energy Advances

Could our collection be the ideal platform for your next energy research publication on nanomaterials for solar energy conversion?

We invite you to contribute to our collection highlighting nanomaterials for solar energy conversion. By harnessing the potential of nanomaterials, we can develop more cost-effective and sustainable solar cells, photo(electro)catalysts, and solar fuel devices, thus reducing our dependence on fossil fuels and mitigating environmental impacts associated with energy production. Understanding the fundamental principles underlying nanomaterial-based solar energy conversion can pave the way for innovative solutions to global energy challenges. For more information on the collection, which closes for submissions on 30th September 2024, see our open call for papers.

Why publish with Energy Advances?

  • Promotion of your work through our journal social media (@RSC_Energy;



Energy Advances focuses on the broad topic of energy science. The journal welcomes research from all related disciplines, including materials science, chemistry, physics, technology, engineering and biosciences. We embrace exciting energy science research, from central concepts to research at the nexus of sub-disciplines, where boundaries are crossed, and communities collaborate to inspire new thinking.

Article publication online and in issues will occur without delay to ensure the timely dissemination of the work. The articles will then be assembled on the RSC Publishing platform and promoted as a web-based thematic collection, to permit readers to consult and download individual contributions from the entire series.

If you’re interested, we invite you to submit your research today, quoting ‘YANaSoEn24’ when submitting your manuscript.
