Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Two-dimensional materials are becoming a hot topic in the modern research community, mostly due to their promising chemical, electrical, physical, and optical properties. Since the first discovery of graphene, an increasing number of 2D materials have been reported. In addition to graphene, these include TMDCs, silicene, phosphorene, MXenes, metal oxide nanosheets, etc. A fundamental question that remains unclear has to do with understanding the origin of the aforementioned promising properties. Two-dimensional materials can be developed through a variety of physicochemical techniques/approaches, which can generally be classified as either top–down techniques such as mechanical exfoliation, solution processing, and electromechanical exfoliation or bottom–up techniques such as chemical vapor deposition (CVD), hydrothermal synthesis, and pulsed laser deposition (PLD). Each approach has its pros and cons. To understand the origin of these promising physicochemical properties, a comprehensive investigation of structure–property relationships in 2D materials is required, which can be facilitated by a combination of experimental characterization techniques and theoretical modeling.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Inorganics is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2700 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.
