Research into the production of two-dimensional (2D) layered materials by resurfacing three-dimensional (3D) crystals, currently used in various aspects of our lives, has progressed rapidly since the discovery of simple approaches to synthesizing single-layer graphene over a decade ago. As a result, dozens of 2D layered materials that possess the characteristics of semiconductors, conductors, and insulators have been discovered. Previously, only small flakes of 2D layered materials could be synthesized, but, gradually, it has become possible to synthesize 2D layered materials with a larger area and single-crystalline structure. Very recently, the controlled stacking of 2D layered materials at the atomic level revealed new physical and chemical phenomena. Based on this fundamental research, new electronic, optical, energy, and sensor devices are being developed that can overcome the physical limitations of current mainstream technology.
This Special Issue is devoted to providing the latest cutting-edge fundamental and applied research across all aspects of graphene and 2D layered materials. Full papers, communications, and reviews on experimental and theoretical studies of 2D layered structures and materials 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 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. 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 2000 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.
