Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Given current global issues such as climate change, global warming, the energy crisis, the need for bio-nanomaterials, and environmental concerns, academic and industrial researchers worldwide are focusing on designing and developing new nanomaterials, alloys, and conductive polymers. Biomaterials, electrocatalysts, semiconductors, supercapacitors, energy conversion into solar cells, electrochromic devices, and energy storage/release are just a few applications that can benefit from the multifunctional capabilities of these versatile materials.

Many synthetic approaches to the manufacture of nanostructures, alloys, and conductive polymers are currently available, but among them, electrochemical methods (e.g., simple electrochemical oxidation (anodizing) of metals or electropolymerization) are particularly attractive due to their simplicity, cost-effectiveness, and versatility.

Therefore, in this Special Issue of Materials, regular research papers and reviews on all aspects of the electrochemical synthesis and characterization of nanostructures, alloys, thin films, and conductive polymers with a wide range of applicability are welcome.

This Special Issue welcomes, but is not limited to, manuscripts on the following topics:

  • Nanoelectrochemistry;
  • Electrochemical processing of nanomaterials, thin films and conductive polymers;
  • Electrochemical characterization of nanostructures, alloys, and conductive polymers;
  • Corrosion and corrosion protection;
  • Intrinsically conducting polymers;
  • Electrochemical synthesis and surface film formation;
  • Deposition of alloys;
  • Oxides and semiconductors;
  • Photoelectrochemistry of semiconductors;
  • Applications of nanostructures, alloys, and conductive polymers in various fields, including photoelectrochemistry, electrocatalysts, energy conversion, electrochromic energy storage devices, bio-nanomaterials; semiconductors, photovoltaics; water purification, electrochemical sensors and monitoring techniques, and 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. 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.
