Since the emergence of nanotechnology in the past few decades, the development and design of hybrid bio- nanomaterials has become an important field of research. Looking at the growing concern about the environment and sustainability, such nanomaterials find many applications in a wide range of domains that influence our society and our way of life. The improvement of properties and the discovery of new functionalities are key goals that cannot be reached without a well-controlled and a better understanding of the preparation, characterization, manufacturing and properties which constitute the starting points of the design of specific and adequate systems. Investigation of nanocellulose/nanocarbons hybrid materials has demonstrated both the academic and technological importance, and offered great research opportunities within cross-disciplinary areas. In our opinion, the applied aspects of such nanomaterials should get proper attention now and bring an interdisciplinary effort to accomplish a more detailed understanding of such hybrid materials.
This Special Issue of Nanomaterials will attempt to publish high quality short communications, research papers covering the most recent advances as well as comprehensive reviews addressing novel and state-of-the-art topics from active researchers in the field of nanocellulose/nanocarbons hybrid materials, concerning, not only the synthesis, preparation and characterization, but especially focusing on the applications of such nanomaterials with outstanding performances. Potential nanocellulose/nanocarbons hybrid materials topics include, but are not limited to:
- Preparation of nanocellulose/nanocarbons hybrid materials with outstanding properties for next-generation applications.
- Characterization of nanocellulose/nanocarbons hybrid materials.
- Nanocellulose/nanocarbons hybrid materials application (medical, filtration, environmental, energy, corrosion, catalysis, automotive, aerospace, sensors, adhesives, packaging, food, construction, other sustainable applications).
