Interests: nanomaterials synthesis; catalysis; energy conversion
In the last years, many efforts have been made for the development of smart and high-efficiency electrochemical systems, in particular for energy conversion and storage, and of technologies for pollutants removal/conversion, in order to satisfy the growing demand of new and sustainable energy resources and to support a more environmentally friendly approach.
Systems such as fuel cells, metal–air batteries, LiS batteries, solar cells, and catalysts for pollutants conversion (i.e., CO2 reduction) attract particular worldwide interest due to their ability to conjugate all the nanotechnology possibilities delivering high performances, allowing to surpass and replace old low-efficiency technologies.
Nowadays, many different synthetic approaches are available and, therefore, it is possible to design and develop new interesting nanomaterials or nano-composites that can combine multifunctional properties easily adaptable to different areas of application.
The scope of this Special Issue, entitled “Synthesis and Characterization of Nanomaterials for Electrochemical Applications”, is to collect experimental research papers that can offer a detailed view of the research on the synthesis and characterization of novel nanostructured materials with peculiar electrochemical properties, able to face the current challenges related to environmental sustainability and energy production/conversion fields.
Articles that refer to carbon-based materials, transition metal-based compounds, 2D or 3D nanomaterials or nanocomposites are welcome. Green chemistry synthetic approaches and multifunctional materials will be of particular interest.
As a researcher in the field, I would like to invite you to contribute enhancing the quality of this Special Issue.

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. 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 2000 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.
