Graphene shows great promise for applications in many fields. Graphene and its derivatives, graphene oxide (GO) and reduced graphene oxide (rGO), have been used as components for composite materials. GO, an important derivative of graphene, is amphiphile with hydrophilic edges and a hydrophobic basal plane. Oxygen-containing functional groups not only improve the dispersion of GO in aqueous solution but also serve as the bonding sites for heterogeneous materials. Therefore, GO is considered a promising component for composite materials.
GO composites synthesized by various methods can be used for solar cells, supercapacitors, sensors, fuel cells, batteries, etc. The versatile applications and synthesis methods of GO composites have opened up a whole new direction for research and development. In this Special Issue, papers related to composites made with GO, graphene, and rGO are all invited.

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. Journal of Composites Science 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 1400 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.
