The demonstration of the isolation of stable single atomic layers of carbon by mechanical exfoliation of graphite has stimulated the interest of exploring a substantial number of other layered compounds including nitrides, dichalcogenites, oxides, silicene etc. which upon reduction to single or few atomic layers complement graphene with a range of novel fascinating properties. There is also a recent surge of considerable interest both in building materials and devices based on stacking heterogeneous layers of these compounds and to design and fabricate nanocomposites with enhanced functionalities when combined/dispersed in other inorganic or organic compounds.
This symposium aims to highlight recent progress in the synthesis of graphene and novel 2D layered materials including various doping, alloy-forming, hierarchical, multifunctional, tunable and switchable architectures, heterostructures, hybrid superstructures and nanocomposites. Predictable structure-property correlations, state-of-the-art characterization and modelling of structure, chemistry and electronic, optical, electrochemical, mechanical and thermal properties and in testing of performance in devices will be also of interest.
Advances in production processes for cost-effective and scalable growth of low-defective graphene and other 2D layered nanostructures and in techniques for their integration into electronic, optical, optoelectronic and electromechanical devices will be relevant subject of discussion as well as the wide range of ongoing and potential applications in energy, environmental, mechanical and biomedical fields.
