Special Issue "Graphene Based Hybrid Nanostructures: Synthesis and Characterization"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 April 2020.
Interests: graphene-metal nanoparticle hybrids; scanning probe microscopy and spectroscopy; two-dimensional nanostructures; interface and surface properties
This Special Issue is dedicated to report on recent advances in the synthesis, characterization, and possible applications of graphene-based hybrid nanostructures. Graphene has been the focus of intense research interest due to its outstanding electronic, optical, mechanical, and thermal properties. Hybrid materials integrating graphene with other metallic or semiconducting nanostructures can potentially display versatile and tunable properties, as well as novel or enhanced functionalities arising from the synergy between the properties of the constituents. The possible applications of graphene-based hybrid nanostructures include optoelectronic devices, energy storage, sensors, mechanical parts, organic electronics, stretchble transparent electrodes, and biomedicine.
This Issue primarily addresses hybrid nanostructures that contain graphene, graphene oxide, metallic or semiconducting nanoparticles, core-shell structures, functionalized graphene, chemically modified graphene, 3D interconnected networks of different nano-objects, etc. Since the properties of these hybrid materials depend also on the interaction between the components, the control of the bonding, density, and distribution of the nano-objects is an important topic of interest.
It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. New experimental findings as well as theoretical studies are 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.
