Special Issue "Functional Carbons and Carbides: Bioapplications and Beyond"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2020).
This Special Issue of C-Journal of Carbon Research aims to bring together original research articles focusing on the biomedical applications of functionalized carbon-related materials and carbides. The morphology and functionalities of carbon-related materials dictate their final biomedical application. Thus, understanding the properties of the different allotropic phases (carbon nanotubes, graphene, amorphous carbon, quantum dots, etc.) will enable the use of each material in the most appropriate biomedical application including drug delivery, tissue engineering, imaging, and biosensing, among others. Two-dimensional transition metal carbides and silicon carbides constitute a new family of carbon-related materials with fascinating physicochemical properties that can be tuned using surface modification techniques. New opportunities for using these new materials in biomedicine will also be explored in this Special Issue. We welcome submissions from all disciplines involved in these interesting topics.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. C is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
