Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The field of electrochemistry has experienced significant progress, particularly in the study of metal nanomaterials. Metal nanomaterials, with their unique size-dependent properties, have garnered considerable attention due to their diverse applications in energy, sensing, and biomedicine, among others. This overview provides key findings and trends in the electrochemistry of metal nanomaterials.

Electrochemical techniques play various roles, from the synthesis of nanomaterials to testing their activity and their characterization. Electrolysis of metals is exploited to produce nanomaterials precisely, including clusters consisting of just a few atoms, to meet industrial demand. Differential pulse voltammetry characterizes monopodal nanoclusters with another metal, which is particularly relevant in single-atom catalysis. Cyclic voltammetry, chronoamperometry, and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy are commonly used as a means to investigate electrocatalytic activity, charge storage capabilities, and electron transfer kinetics of metal nanomaterials.

Furthermore, electrochemical studies extend beyond collective behaviors to the single particle level. Electrochemistry, alone or combined with other techniques, enables the examination of individual particle properties, providing crucial insights into their behavior as a collective assembly.

In summary, the rapidly evolving field of electrochemistry of metal nanomaterials holds exciting prospects for energy conversion and storage, catalysis, and sensing applications. Continued research and innovation in this area promise to unlock new frontiers in electrochemistry, contributing to the advancement of energy technologies and sustainable solutions.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
