Special Issue "Black Phosphorus: Application in Materials Science"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2018
Black phosphorus (BP), also known as phosphorene, has attracted recent scientific attention owing to its unique structure and properties. As a direct-bandgap layered 2D semiconductor, BP has intriguing physical properties, such as high charge carrier mobility, large on-off ratio, significant anisotropy, and layer-dependent bandgap. Therefore, it has shown great application potential in field-effect transistors, photoelectric devices, lithium-ion batteries, photo-therapy, photovoltaics, sensing, and catalysis. Furthermore, the biodegradability and biocompatibility of BP bode well for biomedical applications.
In this Special Issue, articles are invited to provide a recent insight into the synthesis, properties and applications of black phosphorus.Prof. Xue-Feng Yu
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. Molecules 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 1800 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.
