Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, the field of nanostructured materials has garnered increased attention due to their unique properties and potential applications in various fields. The development of novel materials for electrocatalysis has been of particular interest, with a focus on enhancing energy efficiency and sustainability in various industries. The hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) and oxygen evolution reaction (OER) are electrocatalytic reactions that play a critical role in energy conversion and storage systems.

This Special Issue aims to comprehensively cover the latest advancements in the field of nanostructured electrocatalysts for HER and OER. It will encompass a wide range of topics, including synthesis techniques, characterization methods, fundamental studies on catalytic mechanisms, and practical applications in various energy conversion and storage devices. The scope of this Special Issue encompasses contributions from both experimental and theoretical research, with a focus on cutting-edge developments.

The Special Issue will showcase the research driving the field of nanostructured electrocatalysts for HER and OER. This may include innovative synthesis strategies, novel characterization techniques, insights into catalytic mechanisms, and improvements in device performance. Researchers are encouraged to submit original and high-quality work that demonstrates significant contributions to this field.

We are inviting submissions of various types of papers, including original research articles, review papers, and perspective articles, with a focus on nanostructured electrocatalysts for HER and OER and their applications in energy conversion and storage systems. These papers should provide insights into the design, synthesis, characterization, and performance evaluation of materials.

We look forward to receiving your contributions and sharing the latest advancements in the field of nanostructured electrocatalysts for HER and OER.
