Graphene, graphene-based and graphene-like materials have been dominating the fundamental and applied research in materials science since 2004. The 2D nanomaterials family, characterized by confinement in one direction, has been growing over the years with the continuous addition of new members that cover a wide variety of electrical, magnetic, optical, thermal, mechanical and chemical properties.
The abundance of properties, combined with the highest achievable surface-to-volume ratio, render 2D nanomaterials suitable for advanced applications in several areas, such as material science, physics, chemistry, engineering, biology, pharmacy, medicine, etcetera.
From the initial mechanical exfoliation, new production methods for large-area and defect-free synthesis, suitable for mass production, have been developed, along with new characterization tools and techniques.
Despite the impressive amount of consolidated knowledge, 2D nanomaterials offer plenty of opportunities to study electronic, optical, thermal, mechanical, vibrational, spin and plasmonic properties. The development of new applications, as well as of novel top-down or bottom-up approaches to create new materials, as it is currently happening for transition-metal carbides or nitrides, is endless.
The scope of this Special Issue, entitled “The Advances in 2D Nanomaterials” is to provide the state-of-the-art of the research on the properties, the production, the characterization and the applications of 2D nanomaterials, as well as to cover the current challenges related to them.
This Special Issue aims at collecting experimental or theoretical review articles and leading-edge research papers dealing with graphene, different transition metal chalcogenides, arsenene, stanene, germanene, silicene, black phosphorus, hexagonal boron-nitride, layered 2D compound materials or any other 2D nanomaterials.
As renowned researcher in the field, I would like to invite you to enrich this Special Issue.
Prof. Dr. Antonio Di Bartolomeo
