Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is focussed on the contribution of nanoparticle systems to electrocatalytic processes. Electrocatalysts speed up or alter the selectivity of oxidation or reduction reactions. There are many important applications, especially in the field of carbon-free energy technologies, such a hydrogen production, including both the hydrogen evolution reaction and the oxygen evolution reaction. It also includes fuel cells where nanoparticle electrocatalysts are important at the reaction interfaces. Electrocatalysts are also useful for emerging organic synthesis reactions and pollution mitigation processes and in the recent field of electrochemical CO2 capture. In all these areas, nanoparticle electrocatalyst systems can make an important contribution to the field.

It is our pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript to this Special Issue. Full papers, short communications, and reviews are welcome.

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.
