Focus Issue on 2D Layered Materials: From Fundamental Science to Applications

This joint special collection of the Journal of The Electrochemical Society (JES) and ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology (JSS) will provide an open access forum for papers on the growth, characterization, processing, and device applications of two-dimensional (2D) materials. The ability to create and manipulate atomic- and molecular-layer thick materials is expected to transform materials science and derivative technology.

This collection focuses on the synthetic, chemical and physical characterization, functionalization, manipulation, metrology, and applications of 2D materials. Materials of interest are classical 2D materials such as graphene, boron nitride, transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs), transition metal carbides, nitrides, or carbonitrides (MXenes) and emerging 2D materials such as borene, phosphorene, silicene, germanene, antimonene, and new 2D material discoveries. Papers and critical review articles reporting electrochemical and solid state science and technology of 2D materials, both experimental and theoretical, are welcomed including optical, electronic, optoelectronic, thermal, catalytic, and electrochemical applications, their composites, devices and technologies.

Papers addressing the electrochemical aspects (e.g., electrocatalysis, photoelectrochemistry) will be processed by Journal of the Electrochemical Society while those dealing with the solid state aspects will be handled by the ECS Journal of Solid State Science and Technology.

Accepting Submissions: February 13, 2020 | Submission Deadline EXTENDED: June 14, 2020


(At the time of submission, indicate that the paper is intended for the 2D Layered Materials focus issue.)
