The purpose of this Special Issue is to provide an invaluable compendium covering all relevant aspects of the covalent functionalization of synthetic carbon allotropes (SCAs). Our intention is to create a volume that serves as a guide for researchers working in this field which will cover different relevant aspects of covalent functionalizatio, and include contributions from some of the most relevant scientists in field.
Covalent functionalization is one of the most important strategies for creating synthetic carbon allotropes and derivatives with unprecedented structures and properties. Indeed, thanks to the advancement of new and innovative synthetic methodologies for covalent bond formation, functionalized carbon nanotubes/fullerenes/graphenes/carbon nanodots/carbon nano-onions, nanoribbons, nanographene models, heteroatom-doped graphene sheets, porous carbon networks or nonplanar graphenoids can be readily achieved, allowing for the preparation of novel materials and architectures with a high degree of complexity and unprecedented functionalities.
Furthermore, the development of forefront analytical tools and quantitative characterization protocols for elucidating the chemical structures and their influence on the final properties of the materials is a matter of utmost importance. In this sense, communications, full papers, and reviews covering synthetic, theoretical, and experimental characterization aspects of covalent functionalization of SCAs 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.
