Marc Torrell, researcher from the Nanoionics and Fuel Cells group at IREC, and Miguel Laguna from ICMA, are Guest Editors of the Special Issue on “Performance and degradation mechanisms of electrode materials for solid oxide cells devices” on the journal of Materials (Open Access) by MDPI. The deadline for submission of manuscripts is 30th of April 2021.
Message from the Guest Editors
The study of electrode materials for Solid Oxide Cell devices is constantly bringing new progress to the field. Detailed studies of the mechanisms of the historical state-of-the-art materials have brought new architectures, morphologies, and advanced nanocomposites, while new materials compositions have also been tested. The aim of this Special Issue is to compile new results in the knowledge of the catalytic and degradation mechanisms of a wide range of electrode materials. Oxygen electrodes, fuel electrodes or symmetric electrodes produced by technologies from thin films to nanocasting new procedures through electrodes produced by additive manufacturing will be studied operating under fuel cell or electrolysis mode. In this way, the Special Issue will bring a broad overview on the main advantages for the electrodes generated by different innovative technologies.
