Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Currently, there is a tremendous interest in the development of materials with intriguing and peculiar properties at the nanoscale for efficient applications in energy and sensing. Electrocatalysis is a branch of science that investigate chemical reactions occurring at the surface of a variety of nanomaterials from metal nanoparticles to carbon nanomaterials to cite few, with applications spanning from reactions of interest in fuel cells (hydrogen oxidation, oxygen reduction reactions, conversion of CO2 to methanol) to sensors (detection of analytes of clinical and/or environmental interest). This Special Issue of Nanomaterials on electrocatalytic applications in energy and sensing aims at collecting reviews and recent papers on the most recent development in electrocatalysis studies for energy and sensing applications.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Nanomaterials is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1200 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
