Focus Issue on Organic and Inorganic Molecular Electrochemistry

This focus issue of the Journal of The Electrochemical Society is devoted to work at the juncture of electrochemistry and the synthesis of both organic and inorganic chemicals.

It is an exciting time for electrosynthesis given the increasing quest to develop new, sustainable methods for chemical synthesis using clean electric energy. The production of value‐added chemicals using electrochemistry benefits from eliminating hazardous reagents, reduced waste and an increasingly diverse portfolio of methods to control the generation, and reactivity of reaction intermediates. 

This focus issue is accepting papers related to the following topics:

  • Electrosynthesis (methods, mechanisms)
  • Electrochemical reactor design and development
  • Electrochemistry in Pharma
  • Electrocatalysis
  • Green Synthesis through Electrochemistry
  • Stereoselective electrosynthesis

Accepting Submissions: April 9, 2020 | Submission Deadline: July 8, 2020

(At the time of submission, indicate that the paper is intended for the Organic and Inorganic Molecular Electrochemistry focus issue.)
