The study of Nanomaterials has seen dramatic development over the past decades. The unique properties of many nanostructures and their surfaces have led to exciting discoveries in the field of catalysis, including electrocatalysis; a type of catalytic reaction that is able to convert and store energy through reactions involving electron transfer. However, the study of electrocatalysis remains a challenge due to the highly-complicated reaction network, the variety of reaction selectivity and the puzzling reaction mechanisms.
The aim of this special issue is to cover state-of-the-art studies and discussions in electrocatalytic nanomaterials for energy conversion and storage.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
- High-performance electrocatalysts for industrially-important reactions
- Design and understanding of effective electrocatalysts
- New insights into the electrocatalytic reactions at the surface of nanomaterials
- Theoretical and computational study on the design of catalysts and mechanistic understanding
- Energy storage in nanomaterials
- Machine learning-assisted studies on electrocatalytic materials
