Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Currently, microelectrodes are among the most important structures in microdevices and are widely employed in electrochemical applications. Several factors need to be considered when designing and fabricating an efficient microelectrode, including its component, structure and morphology, as well as the interphase between it and the targeted molecules (i.e., the dissolved CO2). They are strongly associated with the transfer rate of both the mass (i.e., H+ in acidic electrolyte) and electron, and the adsorption/desorption strength of the initial targeted molecules, subsequent intermediates and final product, thus significantly influencing the performance of the entire microdevice. In recent years, numerous studies have focused on the design and optimization of microelectrodes in order to improve the mass/electron transfer and adsorption/desorption strength of intermediates, and have made many breakthroughs in electrochemical applications, such as electrolysis, electrosynthesis, batteries and sensors. Of course, there are also significant challenges facing these fields, including precisely constructing unique, or manufacturing homogeneous, microelectrodes and microdevices. Accordingly, this Special Issue seeks to showcase research papers, communications, and review articles that focus on the novel design, fabrication and modeling of microelectrodes and microdevices in electrochemical applications, including electrocatalysis, electrosynthesis, batteries, sensors, chips and so on.

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. Micromachines 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 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.
