Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Catalysis plays a key role in enabling the transition to a sustainable and carbon-neutral economy. Success in sustainable and carbon-neutral catalysis relies on the development of efficient and robust catalysts, which can be directly grown in a controllable manner and easily integrated into photo- and electro-catalytic devices with eco-friendly and scalable methodologies.

This Special Issue aims to cover the most recent progress and advances in directly grown nanomaterials for the modification and engineering of electrodes to boost the catalytic performance of electrocatalytic and photoelectrocatalytic devices. This includes, but is not limited to, the methods and relevant mechanisms for the growth/deposition of catalytic nanomaterials (e.g., electrodeposition, chemical bath deposition, spray coating), surface characterization techniques, electrocatalytic and photoelectrocatalytic applications (e.g., water splitting, CO2 reduction, and the reforming of organics), and fundamental studies on the mechanisms behind the efficient catalysis by catalytic nanomaterials.

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. Nanomaterials 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 2900 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.
