In this issue
The 2D Materials field is expanding rapidly The development of novel 2D materials such as graphene, MoS2, slicene, germanene, tinene and phospherene continues to expand. Progress in the isolation and synthesis of these novel materials is being exploited in applications in chemical and bio-sensors, photovoltaics, water splitting, catalysts, electronics, bio-medicine conductive electrodes and clean energy.
In this issue we look at the impact of graphene in Lithium-ion batteries, a key application market for these materials. 3D printing is one of the hottest areas in advanced materials today and there has been significant recent advances in 2D/3D printing of functional 2D materials. Ink-jet printing of graphene is of great industrial interest and has been expanded to include a variety of other 2D materials. 3D printing of graphene is now undertaken by a number of companies who are also diversifying into other layered materials. These materials are comprehensively covered in this issue as we take an in-depth look at the fascinating 2D layered materials beyond graphene.
