New Special Issue of “Processes”: “Electrochemical Technology for New Materials Synthesis and Reprocessing”

Development of modern electrochemistry is highly relevant, as electrochemical processes frame chemical and metallurgical production of various materials applied for power generation. Technological progress in the field of material science provides an increasing number of economically beneficial approaches for electrochemical production of ecologically friendly materials with exceptional properties for electrochemical power generation.


An Open Access MDPI Journal “Processes” (Q2 WOS; IF 3.352) launches a new Special Issue “Electrochemical Technology for New Materials Synthesis and Reprocessing“. This special issue belongs to the section “Chemical Processes and Systems“.

Guest Editor: Prof. Yury Zaikov (DSc(Chemistry)

Mutual transformations of electrical and chemical energies are of great research interest, due to the availability of the atom energy, development of power sources, electric power storage devices and etc.

Development of new technologies, materials and electrochemical devices requires a deep understanding of the thermodynamics and kinetics of processes on the electrode boundary. Therefore the special issue of Materials «Materials for electrochemical power generation» is devotes to the study of the following aspects:

  • modeling of properties and structures of molten media and electrochemical devices;

  • kinetics and thermodynamics of electrode processes on solid and molten electrodes in molten salts;

  • materials for aerospace industry and nuclear energy;

  • new electrochemical and pyrochemical technologies;

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

  • promising functional materials for solid-oxide electrochemical devices and solid-oxide electrochemical devices of new generation.

Keywords: thermodynamics; kinetics; molten salts; solid electrolyte; electrolytic refining; electrochemical devices; electrochemical system; computer simulation

Deadline for manuscript submissions: 10 January 2023
