Graphene is composed of single-layer sp2-bonded carbon atoms that are densely packed in a honeycomb crystal lattice. It has the characteristics of high carrier mobility, ultra-high specific surface area, high optical transparency, and good conductivity and thermal conductivity. Its unique physical and chemical properties make it possible to prepare various functional nanodevices. Therefore, graphene is widely studied and applied, such as in electronics, photonics and optoelectronic circuits, energy storage and conversion, biomedicine, sensors, and other fields.
As a typical ultra-thin two-dimensional nanomaterial, graphene can show new characteristics after physical or chemical modification. For example, due to its unique ultra-thin structure, graphene can easily adjust its properties and functions through surface modification, doping, defects, and so on, so as to realize the functionalization of graphene. Functionalization not only optimizes the traditional properties of graphene but can also help to prepare graphene-based nanodevices with new functions to meet different application needs, which also shows that functionalized graphene-based nanodevices have excellent performance and good application prospects.
We invite researchers to contribute original and review articles on functional graphene-based nanodevices. Potential topics include but are not limited to the synthesis, modification, and functionalization of ultra-thin two-dimensional graphene and characterization, characterization methods, and applications of graphene-based nanodevices (including transistors, energy storage devices, sensors, photovoltaics, transparent electrodes, etc.).
We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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. Nanomaterials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2900 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.
