Special Issue "Functional Materials for Bio-Sensing, Bio-Imaging, and Controlled Release"
A special issue of Materials (ISSN 1996-1944).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2015)
This Special Issue focuses on functional materials for applications in bio-sensing, bio-imaging, and controlled release. The functional materials include enzymes, antibodies, DNA, synthetic and biological polymers, host-guest systems, carbon nanomaterials, such as nanotubes and graphene, as well as metal or semiconductor nanoparticles. Papers dealing with bio-sensing or bio-imaging systems, constructed by using functional materials, coupled with enzymes and antibodies, are welcome. The development of self-assembled architectures and thin films for drug delivery, and their in vivo or in vitro evaluation, is also within the scope of this Special Issue. The submission of papers on the construction of high-performance electrochemical and optical bio-sensing systems is particularly encouraged.
This Special Issue aims to promote the exchange of ideas, and the knowledge of scientists and engineers working in the communities of bio-sensing, bio-imaging, and controlled release.

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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1600 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.
