Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The electrochemical CO2 reduction reaction (CO2RR) to fuels and added-value chemicals is a promising route with which to recycle CO2 efficiently and therefore lower the global carbon footprint.

Regardless of recent progress in the CO2RR, this field still faces challenges related to catalytic activity, selectivity, and durability. In this way, this issue is dedicated to highlighting recent research efforts focused on the design and synthesis of novel, cost-effective, and robust nanostructured materials including (bi-)metals, metal oxides and sulfides, carbon-based materials, and organic frameworks, among others, for electrochemical CO2RR.

We invite colleagues working in these emerging and promising topics of research 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.
