Research on carbon-based nanomaterials, such as carbon nanotubes, graphene and its derivatives, nanodiamond, fullerenes, and other nano-sized carbon allotropes, has experienced sharp exponential growth over the last years. The infinite possibilities to modify and tailor carbon nanomaterials, is associated with their small size, approaching the size of many fundamental biomolecules; their large specific surface area; high electrical and thermal conductivity; unique optical properties; and superior mechanical properties, have paved the way for a broad range of applications. In particular, fullerene derivatives have been applied to solar energy scavenging; graphene has been widely used in flexible electronics, carbon nanotubes have been tailored to have molecular recognition capability; carbon or graphene quantum dots have been extensively used for bioimaging and sensing, owing to their photoluminescence properties; and nanodiamonds have been demonstrated to be useful in super-resolution imaging and nanoscale temperature sensing.
This Special Issue aims to offer a forum for the publication of original research/review articles regarding carbon-based nanomaterials. It covers all branches and aspects of new processing techniques and testing methods, as well as their applications. Novel surface modifications of carbon nanomaterials to tailor their physico–chemical properties are welcomed. Authors are encouraged to submit their original works stressing the applications of the carbon nanomaterials in a variety of fields, such as electronics, energy storage, biomedicine, sensing, and so forth.
We aim to gather contributions from renowned researchers in the field in order to make this issue a reference for the entire scientific community working on the fundamental and applied research of carbon nanomaterials. We wish this issue to reflect the plethora of carbon nanomaterials and the variety of strategies that have been developed in order to enhance their performance.Prof. Dr. Ana María Díez-Pascual
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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
