Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the past few years, we have witnessed significant advances in the fabrication and/or functionalization of carbon-based nanomaterials, such as graphene, carbon nanotubes, carbon nanofibers, nanodiamond, fullerenes, and other nano-scaled carbon allotropes. Meanwhile, carbon-based nanomaterials have been continuously explored for a variety of applications, such as energy storage, energy harvesters, catalysts, sensors (biosensors or chemical sensors and physical sensors), water treatment, and biomedical applications. Carbon-based nanomaterials have also been widely studied for the development of functional nanocomposite materials by combining with other nanomaterials or matrices such as polymers, metals, or ceramics. These nanocomposite materials demonstrate unique properties for broad applications.

In this Special Issue, we invite colleagues to submit original research articles, communications, and reviews regarding recent advances of carbon-based nanomaterials. The issue will cover all aspects relevant to carbon-based nanomaterials, including new fabrication/functionalization methods as well as their new 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. Sci is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1200 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.
