Electrocatalysis is a process that involves the acceleration of an electrochemical reaction by a catalyst at the electrode surface. The use of electrocatalysis is widespread in many applications, such as energy conversion, environmental remediation, chemical synthesis and many more. The development of efficient and cost-effective electrocatalysts requires a fundamental understanding of the underlying physical and chemical phenomena that govern the process, as well as the multiscale interactions between the catalyst, the electrolyte, and the electrode surface.   Electrodeposition is a common technique for the synthesis of electrocatalysts. The process involves the deposition of a metal or a compound onto a substrate using an electric current/potential. This technique can be used to control the morphology, composition, and structure of the electrocatalyst, which in turn affects its performance. On the other hand, both the electrodeposition and electrocatalysis processes are influenced by a multitude of physical and chemical phenomena, such as nucleation and growth, mass transport, chemical and...
