The electrochemical description, characterization and application of planar carbon-based electrodes, e.g., glassy carbon, edge plane or basal plane electrodes or boron-doped diamond electrodes, are well established in the literature. However, the increase in surface area, for example, the incorporation of roughness or simply the preparation of three-dimensional electrodes through the presence of pores, nanostructures, or mesostructures, modifies the diffusion events and consequently introduces complexity in the reaction rate linked to pore type, pore size distribution, number and different active sites. Understanding of the impact of porosity on the yield, conversion, faradaic efficiency and selectivity of an electrochemical reaction deserves a more rational study for porous carbon-based electrodes. Moreover, knowledge of limited mass transport is crucial to be considered in porous electrodes, thereby modulating electrochemical mechanisms. Hence, the scope of this Special Issue includes, but is not limited to:
- Novel preparation of gas diffusion electrodes;
- Scalability of gas diffusion electrodes;
- Electrosynthesis inside the porosity;
- Energy transformation and energy storage;
- Wastewater treatments;
- Electrochemical sensing and biosensing;
- Free metal catalyst porous carbon-based electrodes.
The Guest Editors are pleased to invite you to contribute original experimental and theoretical full or critical minireviews, reflection articles or research manuscripts to the forthcoming Special Issue, “Porous carbon-based electrodes”, of C. Reflections and critical (mini)reviews on recent progress and trends in porous carbon-based electrode preparation and their applications are welcome, and will help academics and researchers in fields such as electrochemistry, materials science and chemical engineering, among others.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. C is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1400 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.
