2D materials: preparation, characterization and applications
Ever since the discovery of graphene, two-dimensional materials have generated significant attention due to their unique properties. This Collection assembles original Articles that present novel methods to enable the synthesis of a broad spectrum of 2D materials, and that characterise their physical and electronic properties. This Collection also explores the potential uses of 2D materials, and the applications of their exceptional performances to electronics, clean energy, bioengineering and biosensing.
