Thematic Series currently open for submission: (1) Nanocarbon composites (2) 2D materials (3) FEBIP/FEBID chemistry (4) Nanotribology

We currently have four open Call for Papers where you can submit your most exciting, original research to the Beilstein Journal of Nanotechnology (BJNANO) as a peer-reviewed article for the Thematic Series “Advances in nanocarbon composite materials”, Silicene, germanene and other group IV 2D materials”, “Chemistry for electron-induced nanofabrication” and “Nanotribology”. Please find more detailed information below. Note that we accept submissions in all other subfields of nanotechnology on a continuous basis for our regular BJNANO journal stream.

Why BJNANO?

BJNANO is a platinum open-access journal (submission fees are fully funded by the Beilstein-Institut, all articles remain open access), publishing high-quality peer-reviewed articles that are archived and indexed in all major repositories, search engines and databases – complete with a DOI specific to your paper. You retain the rights to your paper according to the Creative Commons Attribution License agreement. To ensure only high-quality articles are published, each article undergoes an initial quality check, plagiarism check and peer review.

Thematic Series

BJNANO began publishing theme-grouped volumes (Thematic Series) in 2010 and has demonstrated great success with more than 50 Thematic Series published to date. Note that the articles of this series will appear together on the Thematic Series webpage, but will be individually published in the regular BJNANO stream as soon as they are completed – no waiting on the entire volume to be accepted before your article is available online!

Before submitting your article, please carefully review the Instructions for Authors and consult the Beilstein Journal of Nanotechnology Editorial Team if you have questions regarding submission and processing of your article.

 

(1) Advances in nanocarbon composite materials

This Thematic Series will report on advances in composite materials employing carbon nanotubes, graphene oxide, graphene and few-layer graphene (FLG) which are featured in nanocarbon reinforcement materials and also improve the interfacial bonding between the nanocarbon reinforcement elements and the composite matrix.

The contribution of original research leading to the strengthening and development of composite nanomaterials, such as the examples that follow, are highly encouraged:

- Carbon nanotubes – SWCNTs and MWCNTs and their chemical, biological or physical modifications in composites

- Graphene, graphene oxide (GO and rGO) and FLG in integrated composites

- New composite carbon nanomaterials with electrical, electronic and multifunctional properties

In addition to the synthesis and development of the composite nanomaterials, manuscripts reporting the characterization of such nanocarbon composites, applications exemplifying the improved nanocomposite properties (strength, conductivity, etc.) and theoretical modelling of such nanocarbons and composites will be considered.

Submission Deadline: April 15, 2017

 

How to Submit

Please inform Dr. Malik if you intend to submit a manuscript, and if so, in which format (Review, Research Article or Letter). Please submit your article directly to the Beilstein Publishing System along with your cover letter containing the following information:

Thematic Series: Advances in nanocarbon composite materials
Guest Editors: Dr. Sharali Malik, Prof. Arkady Krasheninnikov, Prof. Silvia Marchesan

2) Silicene, germanene and other group IV 2D materials

This Thematic Series will be a collection of contributions covering all aspects of experimental and theoretical research on elemental 2D materials such as silicene-, germanene- and stanene-based materials, including:

- Synthesis of group IV-based 2D materials

- Characterization of their fundamental structural, electronic and optical properties (including exotic effects)

- Functionalization by inorganic or organic compounds

- Application of these materials in electronic devices

Submission Deadline: April 15, 2017

(3) Chemistry for electron-induced nanofabrication

This Thematic Series will cover all relevant aspects of FEBIP and in particular FEBID, including:

- the fundamental electron–precursor interactions leading to precursor fragmentation,

- the surface reactions initiated by these interactions,

- the design and synthesis of novel FEBID precursors, and

- advances in the performance of FEBID processes with respect to deposit purity, spatial resolution, and processing speed.

The performance of these nanofabrication processes and the properties of the resulting nanomaterials depend decisively on how precisely the underlying chemistry can be controlled. In fact, it is the interplay of electron-induced and thermal precursor chemistry together with the reactivity of the surface where these reactions take place that determines the composition and the spatial resolution of deposits fabricated by FEBIP. This calls for the development of novel precursors designed specifically for electron beam driven processing and optimized processes with respect to surface chemistry or added purification reagents, taking also into consideration new developments in precursor supply instrumentation.

Submission Deadline: June 20, 2017
