Special Issue "Physics and Chemistry of Graphene: From Fundamentals to Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 May 2021.
Interests: excitonics of molecular crystals; phonon spectra of molecular crystals (inelastic neutron scattering, calculation); exciton–phonon interaction and vibronic spectra of molecular crystals; phase transformation in molecular solids with liquid–crystal behavior (vibrational spectroscopy and neutron diffraction); vibrational spectroscopy of nanoparticles, quantum–chemical simulations of nanoobjects; computational fullerenics; computational chemical physics of graphene
Graphene’s nickname as a ‘miracle material’ is perfectly consonant with its superior properties. The real miracle of graphene is that the species is a union of two entities: chemical and physical, each of which is unique in its own way. The molecular–crystalline duality of graphene is a natural consequence of this feature. Graphene dualism ensures a further division of the body into per sci and high tech graphenes, the former of which is the object of fundamental studies, while the latter is the working material for plenty of attractive applications.
The present Special Issue on “Physics and Chemistry of Graphene: From Fundamentals to Applications” will highlight the forefront of research in this interdisciplinary area spanning physics, chemistry, biology, and geology of per sci graphene and commercial developments of per tech. The issue will cover a large set of topics including synthesis and structural studies of graphene crystals and molecules; chemistry and electrochemistry; electrical and optical properties; variety of spectroscopy; thermal, magnetic, and mechanical properties; theory and computational simulations; devices constructed from of graphene; energy applications; and biomedical and other applications.

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.
