The main goal of this thematic issue is to highlight novel developments and trends in the field of carbon-based nanomaterials for energy-related applications. Carbon nanomaterials (including its porous congeners and hybrid materials) have been recognized as one of the most promising elements in this field due to their diversity in structure, morphology and composition. Moreover, it comprises the base chemical element for a variety of composite and hybrid materials with unique properties.

Key topics of this special issue will include synthesis and fabrication methods, progress on nanoscale structural and chemical characterization, insights from simulation approaches, as well as energy-related topics in which carbon-based materials have emerged to play a prominent role in future developments of the field.

Last but not least, this thematic issue will also cover strategies and ideas for future developments in the field of carbon-based nanomaterials. Potential contributions to the thematic issue may therefore include, but are not limited to the following topics:

  • Specific synthesis techniques and approaches towards new carbon-based materials, including graphene, nanotubes, nanohorns, quantum dots, porous carbons and also composite and hybrid materials.
  • Studies of energy-related functional properties of carbon-based materials, e.g., in electrical energy conversion, solar energy conversion, energy storage, but also energy-related gas separation technologies such as carbon capture and storage.
  • Advanced simulative or analytical methods for the specific characterization of carbon-based nanomaterials related to chemical composition, structural characterization, or physico-chemical performance studies of carbon-based nanomaterials with emphasis on catalysis, energy harvesting, energy conversion and more.

Submission deadline: February 1, 2019
