The synthesis of graphene in 2004 ushered in an exciting new area of scientific research focussed on materials broadly known as 2D materials. Since 2004, a host of 2D materials have been produced, including, for example, Silicene, Phosphorene and Molybdenum disulphide. Some of the unique properties of 2D materials, such as high surface area to volume ratio, surface charge, structure, anisotropic nature and tuneable functionalities, means they have found a wide range of applications in diverse areas of research, such as material science, optoelectronics, microscopy, engineering and biomedical science. While 2D materials have demonstrated remarkable potential, there are still many challenges remaining, including how to determine their thickness or layer number accurately, methods of production that are fast and scalable, and finding new areas of research and industry that can use them effectively. This Special Issue of Nanomaterials is therefore aimed at presenting the very latest developments in the characterization, synthesis and applications of 2D materials by leading research groups in the field.

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. Nanomaterials 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 2200 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.
