Special Issue "Multifunctional Graphene-Based Nanocomposites"
A special issue of Nanomaterials (ISSN 2079-4991).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2020).
Interests: nanoparticle synthesis, polymer and nanocomposite thin film preparation, and the characterization of devices made thereof
Since the first scotch tape stripping experiment in 2004, graphene has been quickly accompanied by a significant publicity as a groundbreaking material which has the potential to change the world through a new technological revolution. Graphene and graphene-related materials have been the subject of serious research efforts; to date, about 140,000 articles touching this topic are available on Web of Science. There is not only an enormous hype surrounding this material, but real applications and products are starting to appear on the market and the mass industrialization of graphene is imminent.
This Special Issue will attempt to cover the recent advances in designing graphene-based nanocomposite materials, focusing on the synthesis and preparation of functional materials and structures, and specifically emphasizing studies of process–structure–property–function relationships. The demonstration of the performance of a functional material or device should be included in each original research paper. Because the promised future of graphene-based materials is fast approaching, scale-up studies as well as research on fabrication processes and other practical issues related with the viable production or application of these materials are of growing importance and therefore highly attractive for publication in this issue as well. We welcome submissions of both original research papers and reviews on this topic.

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.
