Today, electromagnetic pollution triggered by the wide application of 5G technology poses a grave threat to people's health and the use of precision instruments. The most effective way to solve this issue is to design effective electromagnetic wave absorbing materials (EMWAMs). In order to achieve significant absorption of electromagnetic waves, the absorber should include exceptional impedance matching ability and excellent attenuation ability. Due to quantum size effect and small size effect, nanomaterials have been widely used in the field of microwave absorption. However, with single-phase nanomaterials, it is generally difficult to achieve plummy impedance matching or attenuation performance. Rational recombination of nanomaterials is an effective avenue by which to achieve dissipative electromagnetic waves. For example, single-phase MXene is widely used in the field of electromagnetic shielding due to its high conductivity, and MXene-based composite may be one of the optimum candidates for the purpose of “thin, light, wide and strong” EMW absorbing materials.
In recent years, researchers from Asia have been very active in the field of EMWAMs, contributing the most papers. This Special Issue specifically focuses on “electromagnetic wave absorbing nanocomposites”, including ferrites, oxides, carbides, sulfides, MXenes, ceramics, and carbon materials, and welcomes contributions devoted to nanocomposite synthesis, advanced characterization, and the relationship between structure and properties of novel electromagnetic wave absorbing nanocomposites.
