Chemistry of 2-Dimensional Materials: Beyond Graphene: Faraday Discussion 227


About this book

Graphene has extraordinary chemical and physical properties ensuring its use in opto-electronics, energy and biomedical applications. One of the greatest challenges is to develop and master chemical strategies for other 2D materials such as transition metal dichalcogenides. In nature one can find over 3000 layered compounds with different chemical compositions and structures holding diverse physical properties.

This Faraday Discussion covers all areas related to other 2D materials' chemistry, spanning from their theoretical/computational prediction to their synthesis and functionalization yielding 2D and 3D systems with tailor-made physical properties - for composites, foams and coatings, membranes, (bio)sensing, (electro- and photo-)catalysis, energy conversion, harvesting and storage, (opto)electronics, nanomedicine and biomaterials.

This volume brings together internationally leading researchers from across this intrinsically interdisciplinary field to focus on the following four key themes:

2D materials production and generation of functional inks
Biomedical applications
Applications in energy
Applications in opto-electronics

Author information

Faraday Discussions documents a long-established series of Faraday Discussion meetings which provide a unique international forum for the exchange of views and newly acquired results in developing areas of physical chemistry, biophysical chemistry and chemical physics. The papers presented are published in the Faraday Discussion volume together with a record of the discussion contributions made at the meeting. Faraday Discussions therefore provide an important record of current international knowledge and views in the field concerned. The latest (2019) impact factor of Faraday Discussions is 3.797.
