Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
After the first successful Special Issue focused on the synthesis, characterization and application of non-precious metal electrocatalysts, we propose the second edition, titled “Non-precious Metal Electrocatalysts: Synthesis, Characterization and Application, 2nd Edition”.
Electrocatalysis plays an important role in many chemical processes and targets improving efficiency. However, in many cases, in order to accelerate the electrochemical process, it is necessary to use catalysts containing noble metals such as platinum, which raises the system’s capital cost and the price of its products. Thus, many works are dedicated to the development of less expensive and more available catalysts by means of metallic and nonmetallic materials with high electrocatalytic activity. This Special Issue collects original research papers, reviews, and commentaries focused on the challenges in developing sufficient and cheap electrocatalysts. Submissions in the following areas are especially (but not exclusively) welcome:
- The mechanisms and kinetics of electrochemical reactions;
- Electrochemical degradation of pollutants;
- Electrochemical reactions;
- Electrode reactions.

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.
