Special Issue "Carbon-Based Materials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 October 2020.
The aim of this Special Issue is to present the state-of-the-art research progress in the field of carbon-based nanomaterials. Since the experimental discovery of graphene in 2004, the field of carbon nanostructures has become one of the fast developed fields of science. In addition to studying the basic polymorphs of carbon (nanotubes, fullerenes, and graphene), carbon nanostructures of various morphology have been extensively studied. Moreover, new carbon materials with improved mechanical, electrical, chemical, and optical properties are predicted and considered to be very promising for practical application. The properties of such nanomaterials are commonly determined by their structural features.
The transition from carbon polymorphs to three-dimensional nanomaterials of complex architecture is currently an important task of material science. It is necessary to determine the possibilities of the existence of such structures at macroscopic and microscopic levels and examine in detail their properties to create a new generation of functional materials. Carbon-based materials in the form of films, fabrics, aerogels or microstructural materials are known by their large surface areas and pore volumes, light weight, a great variety of structural morphology, and how promising they are for nanoelectronics, energy storage, gas sensing, to name a few.
It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews are all welcome.Prof. Julia A. Baimova
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.
