Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As our reliance on renewable energy sources grows, so too does our need to store this energy in order to mitigate against peaks and troughs in supply. Amongst the numerous solutions that have been proposed for this challenge, the electrolysis of water using renewables stands out due to its scalability and the potential for hydrogen to underwrite a global sustainable energy cycle.

This Special Issue of Molecules is devoted to electrocatalysis and photo-electrocatalysis of water splitting reactions, including studies on the oxygen evolution reaction, the hydrogen evolution reaction and complete water-splitting systems. Manuscripts examining theoretical and computational aspects of water-splitting electrocatalysis and photo-electrocatalysis are also welcome, as are concept articles that wish to expound new directions in electrocatalysis relating to water splitting. All scientists working in these emerging and promising fields of research are strongly encouraged to submit their original works for publication in 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. 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.
