Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Since graphene was discovered, various 2D materials (graphene oxides, MXenes, metal chalcogenides, and their hybrids, composites, etc.) have been studied because they have quite a wide range of interesting properties. Therefore, they have been expected to find applications in electronics, photonics, electrophotonics, sensors, capacitors, catalysis, and biomedicine. These 2D materials can be deposited as films and laminated on various substrates via dry or wet conditions.

The present Special Issue of Nanomaterials aims to collect articles in order to gain new insight and identify new horizons of these 2D materials. Topics of interest include 1) the synthesis and fabrication of new 2D materials; 2) characterization; 3) properties; 4) integration and assembly into homogeneous and/or heterogeneous layers; 5) device formation; 6) function and application in various conditions; and 6) theoretical analysis and simulation; among others. We expect to collect not only original research papers but also critical/prospective review papers. We also welcome and encourage early-career authors to submit their works to this Special Issue.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 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 2400 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.
