Graphene exhibits exceptional physico-chemical, mechanical, thermal, and optical properties that confer it with a potential for applications in various fields. In recent years, graphene oxide has received much attention as a precursor for the highly acclaimed graphene nanomaterial. Given its accompanying oxygen functional groups, graphene oxide exhibits a rich chemistry. The degree of oxidation in graphene oxide is one of the parameters employed in order to tailor its applications. Other aspects regard the properties of the starting graphite, the exfoliation of graphene oxide, and the subsequent reduction of graphene oxide that can be carried out via chemical, thermal, or electrochemical routes. In particular, the properties of graphene oxide open up new fields of application as high-performance electrodes in energy storage devices, sensing devices, gas adsorption, optoelectronics, or biomedical applications. However, it is challenging to make more efficient devices with required efficiencies by optimizing the availability, environmentally friendliness, and cost of raw materials, synthesis costs, and selecting the size-induced properties of graphene oxide nanomaterials.
It is my pleasure to invite you to submit reviews, regular research papers, and communications to this Special Issue on Graphene Oxide: Synthesis, Reduction, and Frontier Applications.

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.
