Special Issue "Electrochemical Synthesis of Nanostructures and Their Applications"
A special issue of Nanomaterials (ISSN 2079-4991).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 March 2019).
Interests: Nanostructured Materials; Electrochemical Synthesis; Interfacial Phenomena; Bio-inspired Materials
Nanostructures can be made by many different synthesis methods, which can be broadly categorized by the following general approaches: Vapor-phase processing, liquid-phase processing, solid-state processing, chemical synthesis and electrochemical synthesis. This Special Issue is concerned with nanostructures made by electrochemical synthesis, which involves charge transfer at interfaces. Examples of such methods are electrodeposition from aqueous and organic baths or ionic liquids, electroless /autocatalytic deposition, galvanic displacement reactions, co-deposition of second phase particles, de-alloying, anodizing, conversion processes or electrochemical deposition under oxidizing conditions. Depending on the application electrochemically processed nanostructures can be made in a large variety of shapes and forms including thin or thick coatings, free-standing sheet, plate, mesh and complex shapes, compositionally or structurally graded materials, powders, composites or microcomponents for microelectromechanical (MEMS) systems. The aim of this Special Issue of Nanomaterials, “Electrochemical Synthesis of Nanostructures and Their Applications”, is to compile a series of articles that highlight the state of the art in this very broad subfield of nanotechnology. Contributions include original articles, reviews and short communications addressing details of the synthesis method, structural characterization and properties of the nanostructures, as well as their current or future potential 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 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. Nanomaterials is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
