Electrochemical Energy Materials – Special Issue of Materials

Dear Colleagues,

Currently, the chemistry and electrochemistry of molten salts and solid oxide materials are of paramount importance due to their possible application for various purposes, including hydrogen and atomic energy. Revealing deep relationships between composition, structure and functional properties of high-temperature materials by means of theoretical and experimental approaches allows the determination of key factors for the improvement of the capability, performance and efficiency of electrochemical devices with prolonged operation life under aggressive conditions. In this regard, the current Special Issue aims to collect research and review articles dealing with new materials that can be employed for high-temperature electrochemical processes.

The Special Issue of Materials titled «Electrochemical Energy Materials» is devoted to the study of the following aspects:

  • modeling of properties and structures of molten media, solid oxide materials and corresponding electrochemical devices;

  • kinetics and thermodynamics of electrode processes as well as interface phenomena;

  • materials for pyrochemical technologies and spent nuclear fuel recycling;

  • production of metals and alloys by electrolysis of fluoride, chloride and oxide melts;

  • promising functional materials for solid oxide fuel cells (SOFCs) and solid oxide electrolysis cells (SOECs).
