Advanced Nanohybrid Materials: Surface Modification and Applications

Description

Research on functional nanohybrid materials has been widely recognized as one of the most promising and rapidly emerging research areas in material chemistry. Nanoscale hybrid materials can be broadly defined as synthetic materials with organic and inorganic components that are linked together by noncovalent bonds (Class I, linked by hydrogen bond, electrostatic force, or van der Waals force) or covalent bonds (Class II) at nanometer scale. Unlimited possible combinations of the distinct properties of inorganic and organic or even bioactive components in a single material in nanoscale dimensions have attracted considerable attention. This approach provides an opportunity to create a vast number of novel advanced materials with well-controlled structures and multiple functions. Many hybrid materials can be handled as polymers. For example, they can be readily shaped into various bulk forms and thin films. The unique properties of inorganic/organic nanohybrid materials can be advantageous to many fields such as optical and electronic materials, biomaterials, catalysis, sensing, coating, and energy storage.

The main objective of this special issue is to bring forth the synergy between material design and applications through new and significant contributions from active researchers in the field. Nanohybrid materials refer to nanosystems in which the hybridization is made at the nanoscale. Equal attention will be focused on the fabrication of inorganic/organic nanohybrid materials and characterization/properties of the inorganic-organic/biological interface at the nanoscale, as well as the applications of nanohybrid materials in diverse areas. We invite authors to submit their original, unpublished work addressing the state-of-the-art research and development in all areas of nanohybrid materials. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Design, fabrication, and interfacial characterization of nanohybrid materials
  • Optical and electronic functional materials such as nanohybrid materials based on carbon nanotubes, graphene, metallic nanoparticles, and quantum dots
  • Surface modification and applications of nanohybrid materials such as catalysis, chemical and biological sensors
  • Nanohybrid biomaterials for bioimaging and drug delivery
  • Applications of new hybrid nanosystems in energy storage such as hybrid solar cells and fuel cells
