Carbon is important for many technological applications, ranging from drugs to synthetic materials. This role is a consequence of carbon’s ability to bind to itself and to nearly all elements in almost limitless variety. The resulting structural diversity of organic compounds and molecules is accompanied by a broad range of chemical and physical properties.
Considering more recent developments, the miniaturization of material dimensions, components, and structures nowadays is reaching dimensions of nanometers, and nano-sized, carbon-based hybrid nanomaterials include several modifications and geometries, such as nanocrystalline diamond, amorphous diamond-like carbon (DLC), carbon-based aerogels, and carbon nanotubes (CNTs), while some other new developments, including fullerenes and graphene, are still in their infancy.
This Special Issue will attempt to cover cutting-edge research, and several applications within the fields of energy, microelectronics, biomedicine, and beyond, while at the same time presenting market opportunities for carbon-based nanoscale materials and devices in the future. In a parallel manner, various synthetic routes for carbon-based nanomaterials will be presented, including chemical and physical routes, top-down (e.g., exfoliation), and bottom-up (e.g., chemical vapor deposition). This Special Issue will also attempt to present the progress in the synthesis, preparation, and characterization of various hybrids based on carbon nanotubes, graphene, graphene oxide, and their derivatives, with various inorganic components such as nanosized oxides, noble metallic nanoparticles, normal metals, non-graphene nanocarbons (carbon nanotubes or carbon nanofibers), semiconductor nanoparticles, and inorganic complexes (SMMs, spin crossover nanoparticles).

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.
