The Electrochemical Society of Japan

Electrochemical capacitors are an electrochemical energy device characterized by high power and long life. There have been an increasing number of practical examples as power sources for automobiles and power storage systems for renewable energy. In this special feature, we call for the latest research results of electrochemical capacitors.

The special feature is proposed by the Committee of Capacitor Technology of the Electrochemical Society of Japan in conjunction with the 7th International Conference on Advanced Capacitors (ICAC2023) to be held on September 26-29, 2023. We welcome papers related to capacitors, regardless of whether it has been presented at the above international symposium or not.

Main Subjects and Categories
Electrochemical capacitors, lithium ion capacitors, electrode materials, electrolytes, nanomaterials, electric double layer, pseudo-capacitance, and other topics related to capacitors

Types of Papers
– Article, Communication, Note, and Comprehensive Paper
– Invited Review Papers are planned by the request of the Editorial Board.
– Review papers must be recommended by the Society or the Society’s Committee.
