Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to submit your research to a Special Issue of Catalysts, entitled "Advanced Electrocatalysts for Energy-Related Applications".

The development of clean and sustainable energy sources is crucial for our planet's future. Electrocatalysis plays a central role in these advancements, driving key energy conversion and storage technologies such as fuel cells, water splitting, and metal–air batteries. However, the efficiency and durability of these technologies are often limited by the performance of electrocatalysts.

This Special Issue aims to showcase cutting-edge research on advanced electrocatalysts for energy-related applications. We welcome original research articles and reviews that focus on the design, synthesis, characterization, and performance of novel electrocatalysts for these critical energy conversion and storage technologies.

We encourage submissions that explore a broad range of topics related to advanced electrocatalysts, including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Novel material design and synthesis for electrocatalysts with high activity, selectivity, and durability;
  • Understanding the structure–function relationship in electrocatalysts to optimize their performance;
  • Computational modeling and simulations for the design and development of advanced electrocatalysts;
  • Operando techniques for elucidating reaction mechanisms and catalyst degradation pathways;
  • Electrocatalysts for specific energy conversion and storage technologies such as fuel cells, water splitting, metal–air batteries, CO2 reduction, and nitrogen reduction.

We invite researchers working on all aspects of advanced electrocatalysts for energy-related applications to submit their original and impactful work. We look forward to receiving your contributions and fostering a vibrant discussion on this critical research area.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Catalysts 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 2700 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.
