Special Issue on Graphene and 2D Alternative Materials: from Preparation to Potential Applications

Published 25 March, 2020

In recent years, graphene and many other related 2D-materials have been established as having high potential technological applications; in fact, a few of them are already being applied. This special issue aims to provide a current view of the field and its future directions with a collection of full articles, communications, perspectives and reviews. It will feature papers from the chemistry, physics, materials science and biochemistry disciplines. 

Topics Covered:

  • Preparation (bottom-up and top-down approaches)
  • Theoretical calculations
  • Fundamental physical and chemical properties
  • Device fabrication for electronics
  • Energy harvesting and composites
