Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The evolution of society, consumer goods, and industry is promoting a true revolution in areas such as pollution control, storage, and energy generation through processes that have less impact on the environment. In this context, electrochemical technology plays an important role as it facilitates the removal or control of different classes of pollutants, including emerging pollutants; more efficient energy storage; and new processes for obtaining substances, such as hydrogen, that are emerging as renewable sources of energy for the future. Electrochemical technology may be the key to new processes that are more efficient and less polluting. Still, in order to solve many of society’s problems, materials with electrochemically active and stable properties that allow them to be used in a variety of processes are necessary.


This Special Issue encourages the submission of papers in the following areas: simulation of materials with electrochemical applications, new processes or approaches in green synthesis, and new materials with electrochemical applications for different areas, such as pollution control and energy storage. These areas will allow compounds with high added value to be obtained that can be used in materials for electrochemical processes of interest to society and industry. New electrochemical processes or approaches using classical materials are also of interest to this Special Issue, which aims to show how electrochemical materials can help society in sustainable development and solve its main environmental and technological problems.

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 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. Crystals 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 2600 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.
