Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Two-dimensional materials will soon be integrated into functional devices for an array of new applications. Symmetry considerations also play an important role in determining the band structure. Depending on the symmetry, a two-dimensional material can be either a semimetal, a semiconductor or a dielectric. This Special Issue in Symmetry will be focused on providing a broad overview of the state-of-the-art synthesis of two-dimensional materials and their broad industry integration from graphene to transition metal dichalocgendies to Mxenes. Magnetic and ferroelectric two-dimensional materials are of immense interest due to their implications for future spintronics devices. Another important area that could be part of this Special Issue is the robustness of the scalable processing methods of two-dimensional materials and ways to make them environmentally friendly.

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. Symmetry 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 2400 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.
