Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

New materials, such as carbon nanomaterials (graphene, graphene oxide, carbon nanotubes, carbon dots, etc.), transition metal dichalcogenides, MXenes, earth-abundant non-noble metal nanostructures, and other kinds of nanostructures, are receiving increasing attention due to their outstanding performance in many electrochemical reactions and processes of practical interest. Electrochemical sensing, fuel cells, metal–air batteries, electrochemical flow batteries, water splitting, optoelectronic devices, water remediation, and other critical processes are being propelled with the development of new nanomaterials and nanotechnology.

Given the increasing importance and relevance of the electrochemical properties of nanomaterials in the aforementioned energy, sensing, environmental, and other promising applications, this Special Issue, “Electrochemistry of Nanomaterials and/or Nanostructures”, in the journal Nanomaterials is open for the submission of manuscripts. Any relevant research concerning the electrochemical and photoelectrochemical properties of nanomaterials and nanostructured materials is welcome. Papers about electrochemical characterization, processing, and applications of nanomaterials will be considered.

Nanomaterials, published by MDPI, is a journal with an impact factor of 4.034, and the submitted manuscripts will be reviewed by top researchers in synthesis, characterization, electrocatalysis, electroanalysis, and the multiple electrochemical applications of nanostructured materials. The deadline for manuscript submission is 30 December, 2020.

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.

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) processed into conductive films by liquid phase deposition technologies reveal increasing interest as electrode components in electrochemical device platforms for sensing and energy storage applications. In this work we show that the addition of acrylic latex to water-based CNT inks not only favors the fabrication of stable and robust flexible electrodes on plastic substrates but, moreover, sensitively enables the control of their electrical and electrochemical transport properties. Importantly, within a given concentration range, the acrylic additive in the films, being used as working electrodes, effectively blocks undesired faradaic transfer reactions across the electrode–electrolyte interface while maintaining their capacitance response as probed in a three-electrode electrochemical device configuration. Our results suggest a valuable strategy to enhance the chemical stability of CNT film electrodes and to suppress non-specific parasitic electrochemical reactions of relevance to electroanalytical and energy storage applications.
