In materials science, electrochemical interfaces and reactions play a critical role in the preparation, analysis and application of materials. They contribute significantly to the development and analysis of new materials and cover environmental applications, energy conversion and storage and sensing technology, and have received growing attention as the century progresses, making it clear that the wide applications related to electrochemistry have a solid present and a promising future.
There are various important electrochemical processes in the industry; for example, through electrodeposition, electroplating and electropolishing to add or remove coatings and layers from material surfaces, as well as technological applications, such as the electrosynthesis of chemicals, the electrowinning and refining of metals, water electrolysis and splitting, flow batteries and fuel cells, surface engineering by electrodeposition and electroplating and electrochemical separations and reactors.
This Special Issue welcomes contributions (articles, communications and reviews) regarding the electrochemistry of materials and their related electrochemical processes.
The potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following topics:
- Electrochemical synthesis, materials and electrode processes characterization;
- Electrochemical corrosion;
- Electrochemical micro-/nanotreatment and surface engineering;
- Electrocatalysis processes and materials, such as water electrolysis and splitting, hydrogen evolution and carbon dioxide reduction;
- Electrochemical energy applications, including materials and devices for energy storage or conversion, such as redox batteries, fuel cells, supercapacitors.

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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2600 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.
