The well-established “ceramic method” is the usual procedure for the preparation of most nonmolecular inorganic materials. There is no doubt about the usefulness and easiness of this universal method of synthesis which works in thermodynamic equilibrium conditions. However, there are some intrinsic drawbacks: high temperatures, the volatility of some reactants, the need of regrinding, and the high energy and time consumption. On these grounds, there is a permanent scientific challenge of preparing new materials by using alternative synthetic routes, including “soft chemistry” methods (sol-gel, coprecipitation, hydrothermal, electrochemical, intercalation, etc.) where the reactions are performed at moderate/low temperature or “fast chemistry” techniques (microwave synthesis, combustion, mechanosynthesis, sonochemistry, SPS, etc.) which enhance the diffusion rate of the ceramic precursors by several orders of magnitude; the reaction time is shortened and often lower temperatures are also feasible. These methodologies have an effect on particle growth during reaction and are interesting not only for potential new applications of nanosized materials, but also for study of fundamental aspects of nanoscale physics of condensed matter. Last but not least, most of these alternative procedures are consistent with the “green chemistry” principles.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that will stimulate continuing efforts to develop the fundamental understanding of the relationship between the synthesis/particle size of the materials and their electrochemical properties.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    Development of new synthetic routes for electrochemical materials
    Effect of nanosize features on electrochemical properties: analysing the relationship between nanostructures and electrochemical properties and/or how to optimize these properties
    Use of “soft chemistry” or “fast chemistry” methods to prepare electrochemical materials
    Thin films prepared by fast/soft chemistry techniques and their application to electrochemical energy conversion/storage
    Fabrication of composite materials by fast/soft chemistry techniques for electrochemical energy conversion/storage applications
    Nanotubes/nanowires/nanorods fabricated by fast/soft chemistry techniques and their application to electrochemical energy conversion/storage
