Electrochemical Phase Formation of Materials and Its Modeling
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (10 November 2023) | Viewed by 5340
Interests: theory of electrochemical phase formation; nucleation and growth; electrocrystallization of metals and alloys; molten salts; computer simulation; silicon
The development of concepts concerning electrochemical phase formation is necessary both for solving fundamental problems of modern science and for further progress in materials research. Understanding the general laws of electrochemical phase formation and studying electrocrystallization processes in each system using adequate theoretical models and experimental methods are important factors for effective control of the structure and morphology of the resulting materials, especially thin films and nanomaterials.
The intention with this Special Issue of Materials is to provide a platform for exchanging new ideas and advances regarding the theoretical, experimental, and computational approaches for studying complex and multifaceted phenomenon such as electrochemical phase formation. Among others, the following topics are the main fields of interest for this Special Issue: numerical modeling of nucleation and growth processes; development of the theory of the initial stages of electrocrystallization; formation and growth of nanoparticles on nano- and microelectrodes; development of methods for analyzing the mechanism and kinetics of electrochemical phase formation at constant and variable supersaturation (overpotential); experimental data and simulation of the effect of electrodeposition conditions on the microstructure, morphology, composition, and properties of the new phase; experimental studies combining electrochemical methods with modern possibilities of in situ electron microscopy observations; and electrocrystallization of promising materials for various 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 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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
