Electrochemical Synthesis and Application of Nanoporous Materials

Call for Papers

Nowadays, a remarkable improvement has been made in the synthesis, characterization, functionalization, and design of nanoporous materials using electrochemical methods. Theoretical modeling as well as the fabrication of the material including application to the biological field is in a recent fashion. Electrochemically fabricated nanosized materials reveal their performance at different geometry scales, because of their highly specific larger surface area and well-defined but tunable geometry and multifunctionality. Electrochemically fabricated nanoporous materials have been acknowledged as favorable candidates for numerous sensing applications, including immunosensors, biofuels, sensors, bioseparation, pollution control, and drug delivery. This special issue focuses on the recent elaborations in the electrochemical synthesis of nanoporous materials that comprise novel routes to fabricate them as well as find their applications, in addition to structural/morphological characterization, properties, and potential applications in various areas of interest.

The aim of this special issue is to get high-quality papers from leading research groups with diverse backgrounds in electrochemical technologies for fabrication and characterization of nanoporous materials. Synthesis and fabrication using electrochemical methods finding new applications in the detection of biological molecules or directed-assembly methods, adsorption, separation, and catalysis linked with electrochemical technology are the key focus of this special issue. Original high-quality research articles as well as reviews that are not published elsewhere or that are not currently under review by other journals are sought.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Electrochemical Synthetic approaches for various types of nanoporous and mesoporous materials
  • Electrochemical characterization of nanoporous materials
  • Electrochemical methods for biomolecular separation, detection, and sensing
  • Electrochemical methods for self-assembly of nanoparticles and porous structures and their applications
