Call for Papers: Challenges in Novel Electrolytes, Organic Materials, and Innovative Chemistries for Batteries in Honor of Michel Armand

Submission Deadline: November 27, 2019

Submit your manuscripts to the Journal of The Electrochemical Society‘s Focus Issue on Challenges in Novel Electrolytes, Organic Materials, and Innovative Chemistries for Batteries in Honor of Michel Armand.

About the focus issue

This focus issue of the Journal of The Electrochemical Society is devoted to the novel electrolytes, organic materials, and innovative chemistries for batteries. This issue is inspired by the work of Michel Armand, Emeritus Researcher at French CNRS, and presently working at CIC-Energigune in Spain and at Deakin University in Australia. Armand, after ushering the intercalation concept, has led the community with outstanding and inspiring contributions to the field of battery electrochemistry with major industrial applications. Armand’s most important renown findings are solid state polymer electrolytes for Li Metal Polymer batteries now commercialized, new highly conductive salt families like LiTFSI (commercialized) and LiFSI for advanced electrolytes, and carbon-nanopainting of LiFePO4 leading to wide-scale commercialization of this olivine in EV and grid storage batteries.

More specifically, contributions are invited on the following topics:

  • Polymer electrolytes,
  • Ionic liquid electrolytes,
  • New electrolyte salts,
  • Conductive layer-coated electrode materials,
  • Electrode materials for organic batteries,
  • Metal/electrolyte interfaces,
  • Full cells made with previous materials and/or electrolytes,
  • Anode metal based rechargeable batteries,
  • Any innovative cell design and innovative chemistry.

All papers published in this focus issue will be OPEN ACCESS at NO COST to the authors! *

Submission Deadline | November 27, 2019

Submit manuscripts

Be sure to specify your submission is for the JES Focus Issue Challenges in Batteries.

Papers accepted for this focus issue are published online within approcimately 10 days of acceptance. The issue will be created online as the articles are accepted, with the final article published in May 2020.
