Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Advanced electrocatalysts for carbon dioxide (CO2) to fuel conversion play a crucial role in climate change mitigation by utilizing renewable energy for sustainable fuel production. These electrocatalysts facilitate the electrochemical reduction of CO2 to valuable fuels such as ethanol, methane, ethylene, or formic acid. Developing efficient electrocatalysts is critical for improving the overall conversion efficiency of this process. Researchers focus on optimizing the conversion of CO2 into desired fuel products by designing catalysts with high selectivity, stability, and activity. This field of study combines expertise in materials science, chemistry, and engineering to address challenges and improve the performance of electrocatalysts, contributing to the advancement of green and clean energy technologies.

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. Processes 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 2400 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.
