Focus Issue on Trends and Biohybrid Approaches in Microbial Electrochemical Systems

The Journal of The Electrochemical Society is publishing a collection of papers on trends and biohybrid approaches in microbial electrochemical systems.

The issue focuses on the most recent approaches utilized to develop microbial electrochemical systems, from the use of porous biocompatible, bio-derived electrodes, to the implementation of novel redox mediation approaches and the engineering of the biocatalysts. Innovative application of microbial electrochemical systems is of interest for the special issue, such as the application for self-powered biosensing, bioelectrosynthesis, and biosolar cells.

Papers presenting novel techniques for the study and characterization of microbial electrochemical systems are also welcome.

This issue is open to all authors interested in submitting review, critical review, perspective, methods, communication, or original research articles.
