Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Starting from graphene, the last decade has revealed the growth of a new class of atomically thin materials called two-dimensional (2D) materials. Like graphene, crystals such as hexagonal boron nitride, transition metal dichalcogenides, phosphorene, and their van der Waals’ heterostructures have shown extraordinary electronic properties, bringing unique prospects for low power nanoelectronics, optoelectronics, spintronics and next generation flexible electronic applications, while being extremely promising for energy harvesting, photovoltaics, energy generation and storage, catalysis, and thermoelectric applications. This special issue “Novel 2D energy materials and devices”, aims to bring together high-quality theoretical and experimental works to highlight the significance of emerging energy-related research in 2D materials.

Therefore, I take the pleasure of welcoming you to submit your manuscripts (full papers, communications, and review articles) covering the outlined and other energy relevant topics to this special issue.

Molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) is a promising transition metal dichalcogenide (TMD) that has exceptional electronic, magnetic, optical, and mechanical properties. It can be semiconducting, superconducting, or an insulator according to its polymorph. Its bandgap structure changes from indirect to direct when moving towards its nanostructures, which opens a door to bandgap engineering for MoS2. Its supercapacitive and catalytic activity was recently noticed and studied, in order to include this material in a wide range of energy applications. In this work, we present MoS2 as a future material for energy storage and generation applications, especially solar cells, which are a cornerstone for a clean and abundant source of energy. Its role in water splitting reactions can be utilized for energy generation (hydrogen evolution) and water treatment at the same time. Although MoS2 seems to be a breakthrough in the energy field, it still faces some challenges regarding its structure stability, production scalability, and manufacturing costs. Full article
