Special Issue "Functional Carbon Materials and Applications"
A special issue of C (ISSN 2311-5629).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 August 2017)
Since their discovery in the last decades of 20th century, the scientific impact of sp2 carbon nanomaterials, composed of zero dimensional (0D) fullerenes, 1D carbon nanotubes (CNTs), 2D graphene, and their derivatives has seen enormously growth. By operating in a multisciplinary context, the superior physical and chemical properties of such nanostructures have been widely explored for applications in different fields, from chemistry, physics and engineering to biology and medicine. A large number of studies have been conducted for developing suitable functionalization processes to overcome some drawbacks and confer favourable functional to carbon nanostructures, mainly in engineering and biomedicine. These synthetic strategies employ both low and high molecular weight molecules to be linked by either covalent or non-covalent bonds. The main aim of this special issue is to present the most relevant and recent insights in the field of functional carbon materials, coupling the synthetic and the application features that underpin the choices made when seeking a specific functionalization route for a defined application.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. C is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) is waived for well-prepared manuscripts submitted to this issue. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
