Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Graphene has attracted much attention because of its unusual properties suited for various appliances. Theoretical and experimental studies have shown that quantum confinement could take effect in graphenes of finite size such as graphene quantum dots (GQDs) and is expected to result in many interesting phenomena. The special issue on GQDs for Nanomaterials devotes to the interdisciplinary subject of all their aspects for GQDs, theoretical as well as applied. The editor would like to draw particular attention to this special issue of novelty, topicality and quality. Papers should present new and interesting science about GQDs in a way that is accessible to the readers.
