Special Issue "Nanomaterials for Electrocatalysis"
A special issue of Nanomaterials (ISSN 2079-4991).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 December 2016).
Interests: metal catalysts; electrocatalysis; surface chemistry; electron microscope in situ technique in material growth and characterization of catalytic reaction and monitoring
Nanomaterials are the intrinsic base for various electrocatalytic reactions in energy and fuel technologies. A great deal of effort has been made focusing on the manipulation of compositions, sizes, shapes, and structures of nanomaterials for preparing novel catalysts for various electrocatalytic reactions. Electrocatalalysis involves the adsorption of monomers, electron transfer, redox reactions, and desorption of monomers. All these processes are the interactions of monomers and the surface atoms of nanomaterials. It is fundamentally important to understand the effect of size and shape (i.e., facet) on the activity, selectivity and long-term stability of nanomaterials as electrocatalysts.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to collect a series of results from experts to show the current research focuses and recent progress in these respects. From this Special Issue, the readers will be able to learn the synthetic approach and deep characterization techniques of nanomaterials for electrocatalysis, the relationship between their compositions or structures and electrocatalytic performances, and start to build a fundamental understanding of the principles that predict these interactions.

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.
