Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The most fascinating aspect of carbon-based materials is that even today, after decades of studies, they continue to attract the attention of the entire scientific community.

Due to their unique chemical, mechanical, electrical, and thermal properties, carbon-based materials are the basis of a wide variety of research and engineering areas. Electronics, energy storage and generation, sensors, composite materials, transparent conducting materials, photocatalysis, and biomedical engineering are just some of the applications where such materials play a fundamental role.

The exponential growth of nanotechnologies in recent years has required the development of new carbon-based nanomaterials with physical properties tailored to specific applications. To respond to this need, extensive research efforts must be made to improve the synthesis, reproducibility and uniformity in the growth of carbon-based materials. In this respect, their characterization is crucial to observe and understand materials’ properties and develop new frontier devices in all fields of science and technology.

This Special Issue of Nanomaterials is therefore focused on new developments in growth, characterization, and applications of the broad family of carbon-based materials, including graphite, diamond, nanodiamonds, fullerenes, nanotubes, graphene and its derivatives, graphene oxide, and carbon-dots.

It is our pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Full papers, short communications, and reviews are welcome for possible publication.

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 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.
