The development of well-organized structures through non-covalent bonding, with possible applications in sensing, is of both scientific and technological interest. The applications of self-assembled sensor molecules with the capability of fluorescence, in combination with other analytical techniques for mapping total metal content, offer researchers the opportunity to address fundamental questions about the sensing of ions, explosives, and biological molecules, for example, glucose or RNA detection. Supramolecular Chemical Sensors permit to sense individual molecules, multicellular organisms, and cells encapsulated in 3D matrices. The rapid progress in sensor science in recent years has resulted in the development of self-assembled fluorescence probes with enhanced analytical capabilities. Because of the vast evolution in this research field, therefore, we have decided that it is timely to compose a Special Issue of Chemosensors focusing on the important role sensors play in “Supramolecular Chemical Sensors”. You are invited to submit manuscripts illustrating the suitability of newly-developed sensors for fluorescent analysis applications, as well as manuscripts describing novel applications of established sensors in solving real-life analytical problems.Dr. Sheshanath Bhosale
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.
