Call for Papers : Recent Research Trend on 2D Transition Metal Carbides or Carbonitrides MXene Nanomaterials

MXenes ae newely emerging two-dimensional (2D) nanomaterials. MXenes are transition metal carbides, nitrides, and/or carbonitrides with the general formula Mn+1XnTx, where M is an early transition metal (e.g., Ti, Zr, V, Nb, Ta, or Mo), X is carbon and/or nitrogen, and Tx represents the functional groups on the surface. Since the discovery at Drexel University in 2011, MXenes have received immense attention in the areas of energy storage, electromagnetic interference shielding, antennas, transparent conductors, sensors, membranes, catalysis and medicine, due to their many advantages including the outstanding metallic conductivity, low density, large specific surface area, tunable surface chemistry, and solution processability. This thematic series aim to introduce the latest research trend of the synthesis of MXenes and their representative applications including electrochemical energy storage and EMI shielding.

Call for Papers : Sustainable Hydrogen Production

Converting renewable energy or materials into non-polluting fuels is a major challenge. Hydrogen (H2) is a clean and renewable energy source as primary alternatives to fossil fuels. A highly promising study is (photo)catalytic to produce H2 through appropriate chemical reactions. H2 can be produced from a variety of primary or renewable sources such as water, natural gas, and lignocellulosic biomass. Papers in this thematic series will introduce and review recent advances in the development of eco-friendly process for hydrogen production specifically by utilizing the catalytic water splitting, photochemical devices, and lignocellulosic biomass.

Call for Papers : Organs-on-a-chip for nanoscience and technology

Organs-on-a-chip and microphysiological systems pro-vide new opportunities to create microengineered in vitro models of complex human physiological systems with unprecedented realism and predictive capacity. With the rapid evolution of this disruptive technology, increasing attention is being paid to its potential as a novel platform to enable and facilitate research in nano-science and engineering. Conversely, efforts are under-way to leverage nanoengineering techniques to advance the capabilities of organ-on-a-chip systems for a variety of biomedical applications. Motivated by these emerg-ing trends, this special issue aims to introduce recent interdisciplinary research efforts directed towards the convergence of organ-on-a-chip with nanotechnology.
