Special Issue "Carbon-Based Materials and Their Electrochemical Applications"
A special issue of ChemEngineering (ISSN 2305-7084).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (18 June 2019).
In the periodic table, carbon, as an element, stands out as important from the standpoint of our existence on this planet as the compounds in our body are carbon-based, as much as our energy storage systems. It exists in attractive allotropic forms, such as graphite, diamond and bucky balls. The use of graphite in the present technological world is growing steadily; with the discovery of graphene which is a 2D material derived from graphite, the importance of carbon has rocketed sky-high. The special issue will focus on carbon-based materials.
The scope of this special issue is to focus on all areas of carbon-based materials in electrochemical applications. Examples include: Graphitic electrodes stemming from artificial graphite to synthetic graphite, glassy carbon, vitreous carbon, single walled and multiwalled carbon nanotubes, graphene, graphene quantum dots, carbon paste and carbon composites.
With rapid advancements occurring in different areas of electrochemistry, such as batteries and dissolved redox flow batteries, sensors, bioelectrochemistry, electroanalytical chemistry, corrosion, electrocatalysis and spectroelectrochemistry, the field of electrochemistry is expanding sky high to address the needs of our society. This Special Issue will also address all related areas of carbon-based materials with specific applications to electron transfer processes that would help the growth of materials chemistry and engineering.

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. ChemEngineering is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.
