Synthesis and Application of Novel Hybrid Nanomaterials in Catalysis, Adsorption, and Electrochemistry


Novel hybrid materials with nanostructures including ordered mesoporous materials, carbon, and metal organic frameworks (MOFs) are receiving great attention in the scientific community as well as in industry because they are one of the most promising tools for creating high performance and multifunctional materials for various industrial applications. Important requirements for these novel materials include a highly specific surface area, a particular well-controlled size, homogeneous distribution, and a strong attachment between the nanomaterial interfacial surfaces. In addition, the ability to tailor the structures and properties of hybrid nanomaterials over broad length scales suggests that research on hybrid nanomaterials will have a tremendous impact in the field of adsorption in environmental treatments, catalysis, physical chemistry, and electrochemistry.

This special issue intends to publish original research and review articles that address the synthesis, processing, functionalization, application, and challenges of novel hybrid materials.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Synthesis of nanoparticles of metal oxides, ordered mesoporous materials, and metal-organic frameworks (MOFs)
  • Functionalization of hybrid nanomaterials
  • Dispersion of nanomaterials in various matrices
  • Fabrication of nanocomposites (polymeric, cementitious, or others)
  • Environmental treatment application of novel hybrid materials
  • Catalysis application in organic synthesis and environmental treatment
  • Developing stripping voltammetry techniques using electrodes modified with novel hybrid materials
  • Environmental effects and sustainability of novel hybrid nanomaterials
