A relatively populous and ever-expanding class of innovative materials are 2D nanomaterials with a disruptive potential for different application contexts. Although for some of them, such as graphene, various possible implementations have already been explored in different application fields, others, (e.g. Mxenes), are still relatively at an infantile stage with regard to handling, stability, exploitation, processing, and practical use in devices and higher dimensionality structures. In any case, regardless of the specific nature of each of these materials, their degree of purity, and structure (mono-layers / few-layers / multi-layers) and their level of maturity, they all share the same challenges from their onset, such asprocessing, patterning, transfer, and integration in devices allowing a smart exploitation of their unique properties, incorporation in matrices of different nature for the synthesis of nanocomposites, and so on. Accordingly, this Special Issue aims to showcase research papers, short communications, and review articles outlining recent progress and innovative approaches for 2D nanomaterials synthesis and/or processing, preparatory to their assembly or integration into devices, microstructures, microsensors, and composites for different application fields. Descriptions of subsequent miniaturized devices and systems (MEMS, microsensors, devices for different application fields like energy, bio, environment,etc.) integrating 2D nanomaterials are welcome and strongly encouraged.

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. Micromachines is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs).
