Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This issue will report on and elucidate the mechanisms of nano-/micro-scale surface reactions in selected 2D materials. Contributions are expected to concentrate on transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDCs), but other 2D materials can also be included. Contributions are expected to report and decipher various modes of surface reactivity, doping, etching, etc. in either atmospheric conditions, for example, in the presence of oxygen molecules and water vapors, and/or in atmospheres of other gases. All kinds of approaches are welcome, including experiments, theories, and simulations. Contributions are also welcome that address the influence of such micro/nano chemistry change on electronic properties and on the electronic structures of modified 2D materials. Papers dealing with the effects of underlying substrates are also 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.
