19th Molecules Webinar

Surface Chemistry of Hybrid Materials

Since the early 1990s, hybrid organic–inorganic materials began to attract significant attention from researchers due to their numerous advantages. Hybrid materials generally include organic and inorganic components linked together at the nanoscale. Because of the nature of interactions connecting both phases, such materials can be divided into two types: a) those with no covalent bond between inorganic and inorganic components, and b) those with covalent bonds between the components. New generations of hybrid materials and nanocomposites with tailorable surface properties are finding increasing applications in many areas, including environmental protection, sorption technologies, biomedicine, sensing, catalysis, chromatography, or multifunctional protective coatings. Proper surface chemistry design is of the utmost importance, as the surface chemistry determines the key properties associated with practical applications in the above-mentioned areas.

Considering the above, this Special Issue focuses on the latest trends and advances in the synthesis and surface tailoring of various hybrid materials and their nanocomposites for different applications. The aim of this Special Issue is to collect articles dealing with new concepts related to the synthesis, functionalization, characterization, and applications of various types of hybrid materials. Therefore, we are pleased to invite you to publish in this Special Issue of Molecules entitled "Surface Chemistry of Hybrid Materials" in the form of full articles, communications, or reviews.
