Interests: designing and fabrication of the electrode materials such as anode and cathode, and solid-state electrolyte such as composite solid electrolytes for high energy density Li-ion batteries; the interfacial analysis between electrode and electrolyte to find out the battery degradation causes and failure mechanism; dynamic studies of the interface and interphases between the electrode and electrolyte in the lithium-ion batteries
After many years being overlooked by the wider research community, climate change and the rise of renewable energy have finally brought both recognition and attention to electrochemistry. Over the last 30 years, electrochemistry research has been on the rise due to its multidisciplinary nature and the broad range of applications that rely on it: from classic metal electroplating in manufacturing industries to batteries in portable electronic devices. This importance of electrochemistry in recent decades has driven forward the development of new electrode materials with enhanced electrocatalytic performance, as well as other improved properties (e.g. conductivity, chemical stability, robustness, etc.) that are critical to increase their lifespan.
This special issue on “Novel Electrode Materials for Electrochemical Applications” aims to gather outstanding researcher covering of all aspects related to electrode materials for electrochemical applications (from their fabrication and characterisation to their application in at large scale). This special issue will bring together high-quality research on this topic, focus on both state-of-the-art development as well as future prospects and challenges (e.g. sustainability of material, fabrication method and application). Applications include, but are not limited to:
- Hydrogen economy: water electrolysis and fuel cells
- Energy storage: batteries (including redox flow batteries) and capacitors
- CO2 utilisation
- Organic electrosynthesis
- Electrochemical sensors
- General electrolysis (e.g. chlor-alkali industry)
- Water treatment

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.
