Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Solid state gas sensors based on electrical and electrochemical transduction principles have attracted intensive research interest in the past years and have been used for a wide range of applications, due to their numerous advantages, like small sizes, high sensitivities in detecting very low concentrations of gaseous species (at level of ppm or even ppb), possibility of on-line measurements and low cost.

Nowadays, modern technology is demanding more efficient gas sensors for advanced applications. Consequently, there is a considerable effort towards the goal of high performance gas sensors with enhanced integration into electronic circuitry employing microelectronics technology. These mass-produced gas sensors could open up mass markets for the industry and environmental monitoring, the automotive and biomedicine field.

The development of nanotechnology has created enormous potential to develop highly sensitive, low cost, portable sensors with low power consumption. The sensor miniaturization could lead to new extensive applications, for examples in cell phones and watches, then affecting our everyday lives. Thus, great efforts in the ongoing research are directed to the synthesis of sensing materials with peculiar nanostructures, because of their high surface-to-volume ratio, charge confinement ability and improved electronic properties.

This Special Issue is therefore intended to encourage researchers worldwide to report their new results in research and development that focus on the most recent advances and overview in nanomaterial science for applications in solid state gas sensors along with their relevant features and technological aspects, Original research papers are welcome (but not limited) on all aspects that focus on the most recent advances in: (i) basic principles of gas and VOCs sensors; (ii) nanostructured materials for semiconductor and electrochemical gas sensors; (iii) new gas sensor principles and technologies; (iv) gas sensor based systems and applications.

Submission

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a 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. For the first couple of issues the Article Processing Charge (APC) will be waived for well-prepared manuscripts. English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
