This is an excerpt from the content

With this Special issue, the Journal of Solid State Electrochemistry celebrates the 70th birthday of Alexander Milchev, Professor at the Rostislaw Kaischew Institute of Physical Chemistry, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, a well-known scientist in the field of electrocrystallization.

Alexander Milchev was born on January 7, 1943 in Giumurdzhina (now Komotini, Greece). He received his MSc degree in chemistry from the Sofia University in 1968. The early contacts with Professor Rostislaw Kaischew who at that time was university professor and head of the Institute of Physical Chemistry at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences predetermined both his academic career and his long-term scientific interests. Alexander Milchev started working at the Institute of Physical Chemistry as a student and in the same institution advanced from PhD student to full professor. He was involved in experimental and theoretical studies of the initial stages of electrochemical phase formation and published papers on th
