Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Electrochemical devices have allowed one to perform selective and clean electrochemical reactions, which compete with alternative chemical processes. Focusing on anodic oxidation, stable anodes have been developed, which are key electrodes that are applied in electrochemical advanced oxidation processes. Thus, high levels of the powerful oxidizing hydroxyl radical are produced in inert electrolytes on boron-doped diamond thin film anodes (the oxidizing hydroxyl radical is the main reagent in the decontamination of urban and industrial wastewaters as well). In chlorinated matrices, other competitive powerful oxidizing agents such as active chlorine are generated. Currently, the application of novel electrodes is focused on the assessment of single and combined treatments to enhance the oxidation power of the electrochemical systems. This Special Issue is devoted to reporting and reviewing the recent advances in electrochemical oxidation processes, both in electrosynthesis and in water remediation.

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. Molecules 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 1800 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.
