The commercialization of fuel cells is mainly hampered by the high cost of platinum, which is responsible for catalyzing fuel cell electrochemical reactions. To date, the different lines of research in fuel cells seek to address the challenges of reducing the Pt content, water management, thermal management, and to develop efficient electrocatalysts for enhanced ORR. All the above, designing efficient electrode architecture requires urgent action, because the present fuel cell membrane electrode assemblies (MEAs) experience severe incompatibilities between the materials utilized for electrodes and membranes. Therefore, this Special Issue primarily focuses on the nano-engineering of electrocatalysts materials, namely, perovskites, metal organic framework, core-shell, transition metal-binding organic materials, Pt alloying and new alloy catalysts for advanced MEAs with exceptional power densities and long-term stability.

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. Catalysts 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 2700 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.
