Since the discovery of fullerenes, carbon nanotubes, and graphene, many novel carbon allotropes have been developed. Extreme synthesis conditions, such as high temperature, pressure, electron and ion irradiation, enable the formation of one-, two-, and three-dimension metastable carbon structures, which are not otherwise accessible. The brief list of carbon-based materials includes carbon onions, carbon nanotubes, perforated graphite, mesoporous carbon, nanodiamonds, and their hybrids and derivatives. These have received great attention in the scientific community due to their advanced functional properties.
The main aim of this Special Issue of Materials is to publish original research and review articles that address the synthesis, structure, applications, and challenges of novel carbon-based materials.
Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:
- Novel synthesis methods, including high-energy electron and ion irradiation;
- Arc-discharge, plasma, and CVD synthesis of carbon-based materials;
- Laser ablation synthesis of carbon-based materials;
- Fabrication of hybrids and nanocomposites;
- Study of morphology and properties of carbon-based materials synthesized under extreme conditions;
- Application of carbon material in electronics, sensing, catalysis, energy storage applications, electromagnetic shielding, etc.
We look forward to your submission.Prof. Alexander Okotrub

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.
