Graphene and other 2D materials have attracted increasing attention since 2004 due to its excellent mechanical, optical and electrical properties.
Its high specific surface area and in some cases high electrical conductivity make them an attractive materials for many industrial applications. In special in the energy area, the use of nanomaterials in energy storage devices is one of the most promising applications as a consequence of the increasing demand for more efficient, longer-lasting and more compact portable electronic devices. These nanomaterials have increased the performance in batteries and supercapacitors.
Also, the optical properties of these nanomaterials can be used for electrodes in solar cells or other different devices in order to generate electrical energy. And using its mechanical properties, nanomaterials can be used as a part of mechanical transducers. Finally, the combination of graphene with other 2D materials or nanomaterials allows the creation of new devices that could generate and storage energy in a more efficient way.
We look forward to receiving your submissions!

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.
