Since the discovery of carbon nanotubes in 1991, there has been renewed and increasing interest in various forms of carbon. While graphene has drawn the attention of the materials science community, other two-dimensional (2D) materials, such as bismuthene, germanene, phosphorene, silicene, stanene and the transition metal dichalcogenide (TMDCs – MX2, M = Mo, W etc., X = S, Se, Te) monolayers have arisen as a new class of materials with unique properties at the monolayer thickness. Their electrical, electronic and optical properties are of significant importance for a variety of applications in optoelectronics, such as light emitters, detectors, and photovoltaic devices. These materials have also opened new areas of application, such as serving as topological insulators, and will, therefore, be the focus of this Special Issue. Additionally, a few reviews dealing with related one-dimensional functional carbon, boron or silicon nanotubes/nanowires and their applications will also be considered to provide a wider perspective to the field of low-dimensional materials.

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. ChemEngineering 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) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
