Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Metal nanoparticles have unique optical and electrochemical properties and catalytic activities, and have become one of the most interesting and sensitive sensing materials. They have been applied in a range of sensing systems for the detection of analytes, such as small analytes, proteins, and DNA.

Because of the rapid development in the area of chemical sensors in recent years, Chemosensors and Guest Editors Prof. Huan-Tsung Chang (National Taiwan University) and Dr. Cho-Chun Hu (National Taitung University) are planning to produce a Special Issue on the topic of Metal Nanoparticles in Chemical Sensors.

This Special Issue will cover all the aspects of the recent progresses in the synthesis, characterization, and analytical applications of metal nanoparticles. Topics to be discussed include (but are not limited to) absorption, fluorescence, scattering, and electrochemical sensors of metal nanoparticles. Metal nanoparticles, such as enzyme mimics for the detection of biomolecules, are also included. Our aim is to highlight great contributions made by leading scientists in this interesting research area and the great impacts of metal nanoparticles. We will be pleased if you would accept our invitation to submit a manuscript on the related topics.

All manuscripts will be handled by the Chemsensors Editorial Office and refereed in accordance to the standard procedures of the journal. The issue will contain a full paper reporting original research and reviews.

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. Chemosensors 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 350 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.
