Carbon materials are an interesting group of materials used for technological developments in both high- and low-performance applications. Carbonaceous nanofillers such as graphene and carbon nanotubes play a promising role due to their structural and functional properties, such as thermal and electrical conductivity, color and textures, load transfer, or optical properties, as well as their broad range of applications, e.g. as reinforcement in polymer matrix composites. Development of these polymer nanocomposites depends not only on the properties of the nanofillers, but also on their dispersion within the polymer matrix, interaction between reinforcement and polymer matrix, and alignment of nanofillers into the matrix.

This Research Topic focuses on the use of graphene and carbon nanocomposites to enhance structural properties of ceramic and polymer composites. Manuscripts reporting new synthetic routes and key structural properties of resulting materials including mechanical, electrical, and thermal properties are welcome. Additionally, we welcome articles focusing on applications and functionalization techniques, i.e. covalent and non-covalent functionalization.


Keywords: graphene, carbon nanotubes, nanocomposites, properties, fabrication, polymers
