The Journal of Carbon Research invites you to contribute to the Special Issue, “Graphene Aerogels.” Graphene aerogels are one of the most explored graphene based materials, with several hundred papers published on the topic in the last few years. This popularity is based on the simplicity of the synthetic method used to make graphene aerogels, their outstanding structural electrical adsorption, and other properties that are important for many applications.
This Special Issue invites original research articles, communications, and comprehensive reviews on the synthesis, properties, and applications of graphene aerogels and associated graphene 3-D composites with carbon nanotubes, polymers, proteins, metal and metal-oxide nanoparticles, etc. The scope covers very broad aspects and encompasses: the fundamental concepts of graphene aerogel preparation; the understanding of their unique properties; the engineering of these properties, in combination with other materials, to achieve advanced catalytic, adsorption, electrochemical, magnetic, acoustic, and thermal performances; and the exploration of their broad applications, including in supercapacitors, batteries, heavy metal adsorbents, oil and dye adsorbents, catalysis, drug delivery, etc. The topic will specifically cover recent progress on the development of new synthetic approaches for advanced graphene aerogel composites with different chemical compositions (metals, semiconductors, metal-oxides, polymers, graphene, DNA, enzymes, etc.) and nanoscale dimensions and morphologies (particles, pores, wires, tubes, rods, etc.), and is focused on designing new materials with improved performances and emerging applications.

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.
