Special Issue "Two-Dimensional Materials and Nano Devices"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 10 January 2024 | Viewed by 2230
Two-dimensional layered materials have attracted tremendous scientific and engineering interest in the past several decades due to their rich and tunable physical and chemical properties, with a near-perfect crystalline structure and dangling-bond-free surface. These atomically thin materials have emerged as a new platform for fundamental research and diverse technological opportunities in electronics, optics, catalysis, energy storage, and thermoelectronics. In general, 2D layered materials can be obtained by both bottom-up growth and top-down exfoliation methods.
The vast library of two-dimensional layered materials has been greatly extended in recent years, including graphene, transition metal chalcogenides (TMDs), hexagonal nitride (hBN), black phosphorus (BP), layered hydroxides (LDHs), silicene, transition metal carbides, nitrides and carbonitrides (MXenes), 2D metal organic frameworks (MOFs), 2D covalent organic frameworks (COFs), and 2D perovskites. The art of synthesis has brought rich controllability to their structures, and some tailoring strategies, such as phase engineering, doping, and intercalation, could further open new pathways to artificial materials with novel properties beyond the reach of existing materials. Therefore, the topic of 2D layered materials continues to be very thought-provoking.
It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue; full papers, communications, and reviews are all welcome.

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 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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2600 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.
