The Carbon-based materials section publishes high-quality fundamental and applied research related to the synthesis/processing of novel carbon-based materials, the study of their physical and chemical properties and the development/improvement of their technological applications. These materials can be either synthetic or of natural origin, and include but are not limited to:
· Classic carbon materials, such as activated carbons, carbon black, graphite, carbon fibers and filaments, cokes and chars
· New carbon materials, such as graphene, graphene-oxide, templated carbons, carbon nanotubes, carbynes, fullerenes and diamond-like carbons
Particular consideration will be given to the technological application of carbon-based materials in areas such as energy storage and conversion, catalysis, electronic and photonic devices, environmental protection, structural, thermal and smart systems, and biology and medicine. Theoretical and experimental studies that help to deepen our knowledge on the mechanisms of the synthesis and uses of carbon-based materials are highly encouraged. Studies on composites will be considered if the carbon component is the major focus, and papers on organic substances will be considered only if the research has close relation to the resulting carbon materials.

Carbon-Based Materials welcomes submissions of the following article types: Correction, Editorial, Mini Review, Original Research, Perspective and Review.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Carbon-Based Materials, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Carbon-Based Materials will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Materials.
