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.

All articles have undergone Scientific Reports' standard peer review process and have been subject to all of the journal’s standard policies. This includes the journal’s policy on competing interests. The Guest Editor declares no competing interests with the submissions which they have handled through the peer review process. The peer review of any submissions for which the Guest Editor has competing interests is handled by another Editorial Board Member who has no competing interests.
