Special Issue "Platinum-Free Electrocatalysts"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2018)
Replacing rare and costly platinum (Pt)-based catalysts with abundant and sustainable non-precious-metal alternatives for fuel cells and metal air batteries will be essential for the wider diffusion, in the future, of such devices. At the same time, fundamental research is necessary aimed at reducing the amount of noble metals used by the combination of two or three different transition metals that promote synergic catalytic enhancements. The aim of this Special Issue is to bring together researchers from all over the world in an effort to create a summary of the state-of-the-art in recent developments in our understanding of the science and technology of platinum-free electrocatalysts. In particular, the topics of interest include a very large area of catalysts in different fields of chemistry, theoretical chemistry, energy, and all fields of morphological and structural analysis of modified surfaces of catalytic interest.

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. 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 1600 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.
