Special Issue Information

Dear colleagues,

Surface functionalization and interface effects offer an extensive toolbox to engineer the properties of graphene and make it a versatile platform for a wide range of applications. This Special Issue of Nanomaterials will explore the complex interplay of graphene with its interface and the various ways of functionalizing its surface. We welcome contributions on innovations that utilize functionalization or interface effects as an enabling feature, for example, the antibody functionalization of graphene may enable selective biosensing.

While surface functionalization and interface effects are a great opportunity to design new modalities, they may also cause undesirable effects that hinder the use of graphene in applications. Therefore, we equally welcome contributions that bring an understanding of these parasitic interface effects and thereby outline a pathway to mitigating them.

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 2200 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.
