Graphite and its derivatives (graphene, graphene oxide (GO), carbon nanotubes (CNTs), carbon black, etc.) have recently emerged as materials of choice in the production of carbon-based nanocomposites, due to the outstanding mechanical and electrical properties they exhibit, related to their sp2-hybridized carbon layer structure. In particular, when graphene is incorporated into a polymer matrix, it can improve the properties of the base material, and the high chemical reactivity of the two-dimensional graphene basal plane opens the possibility of implementing a large variety of chemical strategies for functionalization. In fact, functionalized graphene nanocomposites show strong potential in energy devices and are excellent platforms for environmental applications. Moreover, by modifying graphene sheets with organic or inorganic nanoparticles, nanostructured nanocomposites can be developed, exhibiting improved functionalities and/or novel properties suitable for use in a variety of advanced application fields.
This Special Issue is supervised by Prof. Dr. Carola Esposito Corcione and assisted by Mr. Greco Giusepp (University of Salento). It aims to publish research articles, short communications, and review articles reporting new roads in the development, characterization, and application of hybrid nanocomposites based on graphite and its derivatives that exhibit novel/improved functionalities, and/or those with potential applications in the biomedical, electronic, automotive, and aerospace fields that have not yet been published or that are not currently under review by other journals or peer-reviewed conferences.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
