About this Research Topic
Low-dimensional carbonaceous functional materials have emerged as promising materials for sustainable energy development and environmental remediation due to their unique properties, including high surface area, high thermal conductivity, and excellent electronic and mechanical properties. To enable these unique properties, low-dimensional carbonaceous materials need to be created with carefully crafted surface morphology and tailored properties, which can be achieved through methods such as self-assembly, wrapping, grafting, and one-pot synthesis. However, these materials face several issues that should be addressed for their widespread applications. One of the major issues is the scaling-up difficulty of low-dimensional carbonaceous functional materials while maintaining the materials’ quality. Another issue is their low stability where these materials will degrade over time. Hence, overcoming these challenges requires developing innovative synthesis methods, improving the stability of these materials, and addressing the environmental and health impacts of their use.
