Solid state gas sensors have attracted intensive research interest in the past few years, and have been used for a wide range of applications. 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 based on novel sensing materials. The unique properties (e.g., ultra-thin structure, large surface area and tunable energy band diagrams) of novel two-dimensional (2D) inorganic materials (ZnO, MoS2, SnS2, WS2, etc.) have, so far, led to immense research regarding this material’s fundamentals, applications, and, more recently, its potential for gas sensing.
This Special Issue is therefore intended to encourage researchers worldwide to report their results in research and development on the most recent advances and overview in 2D inorganic nanomaterials 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 their attention on (2D) inorganic materials as sensing materials: (i) novel preparation methods; (ii) sensing principles, mechanisms and technologies; (iii) gas sensor applications.

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.
