Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, 

Two-dimensional (2D) materials have attracted significant attention in recent years due to their unique properties, such as their high surface area, tunable electronic and optical properties, and strong mechanical strength. Some of the potential challenges include the synthesis of large-area, defect-free 2D materials and the development of methods to functionalize these materials for specific applications. However, the potential benefits are also great, and 2D material-based membranes could have a significant impact on a wide range of applications, including energy storage, catalysis, electronics, and biotechnology.

One of the most prominent examples of 2D material-based membranes is graphene. In fact, graphene membranes have been shown to have excellent gas separation properties, and they have also been used for the fabrication of fuel cells and other electrochemical devices.

This Special Issue aims to collect experimental and theoretical investigations on the fundamentals and applications of these materials. Authors are invited to present their recent results, and both original papers and reviews are welcome.

Research areas that may be of interest in this Special Issue include the synthesis, characterization, and modeling of graphenic, semiconducting, insulating, magnetic, or optical materials. Two-dimensional materials that have been decorated or modified by low-dimensional particles are also of interest.

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. Membranes 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 2700 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.
