Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the Journal Molecules, we would like to invite you to publish a paper at the Special Issue entitled “Advanced Nanomaterials for Efficient Energy Electrocatalysis”.

Electrochemical energy conversion via efficient energy electrocatalysis is a very important pathway to solve the global energy crisis and environmental pollution. To develop the advanced nanomaterials as the advanced electrocatalysts plays a key role in the field of efficient energy electrocatalysis and conversion. The essential scientific topic on the electrocatalysts covers the study on catalytic mechanisms and structure-activity relationships via various in situ / ex situ physicochemical/electrochemical techniques and theoretical simulation methods.

This Special Issue mainly aims to the structural/morphology design (e.g. single-atom, nano-cluster, doping, deficiency, hetero-junction, high-entropy, hollow structure, nanowires, hierarchical porosity, etc.) of advanced electrocatalysts (including carbon materials, alloys, transition metal compounds, MXenes, MOFs, COFs, etc.) for various popular electrocatalytic reactions (e.g. OER, ORR, HER, UOR, CO2RR, etc.) and potential electrochemical energy conversion applications (fuel cells, electrolysis, metal-air batteries, Li/Na-S batteries, etc.).

We invite authors to contribute original research articles or comprehensive review articles covering new developments and the most recent progress in the design, synthesis, characterization, mechanism and application of advanced nanomaterials for efficient energy electrocatalysis.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Molecules 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 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.
