Call for papers: Insights into 2D Materials

A themed collection, with Guest Editors Sunmin Ryu (Pohang University of Science and Technology) and Hui Zhao (The University of Kansas)

We are now inviting submissions for this exciting themed collection, Insights into 2D Materials. We encourage all types of PCCP articles – Communications, Full Papers and Perspectives.

2D materials with atomic scale thinness have emerged as a new form of nanomaterial. While graphene was the focus of early studies, since 2010 hundreds of other types of 2D materials have been investigated. This includes elemental 2D materials such as phosphorene, borophene, silicene and antimonene, as well as compound materials such as transition metal chalcogenides and oxides, hexagonal boron nitride, MXenes, and organic-inorganic metal halide layered perovskites. The large number of materials and the many different ways they can be combined to form heterostructures offer a great opportunity to transform materials science and technology, and benefit society.

The goal of this themed collection is to highlight the latest developments in this exciting field. The collection welcomes new insights into 2D materials from theoretical, computational, and experimental communities. This collection will cover topics including, but not limited to, physical and chemical properties of 2D materials, synthesis techniques, structural characterization, 2D and mixed-dimensional heterostructures, functionalization of 2D materials, flexible 2D devices, new novel 2D materials, and applications of 2D materials in biological systems, chemical sensing, and energy technologies.

Following our fair and impartial peer-review, accepted articles will be published online in a citeable form as soon as they are ready. The articles will then be assembled on the RSC Publishing platform and promoted as a web-based thematic collection, to permit readers to consult and download individual contributions from the entire series. We aim to publish and promote the completed collection during 2021. PCCP is a high-impact, international journal publishing cutting-edge original work in physical chemistry, chemical physics and biophysical chemistry. For more information on the journal, please visit the journal homepage.

The deadline for submissions is 16th July 2021
