Special Issue Information

Dear Colleague,

This special issue focuses on the recent development in functional materials and proteins for bio-sensing applications. The functional materials include synthetic smart polymers, biopolymers such as polysaccharide and DNA, carbon fibers and felts, carbon nanotube and graphene, as well as metal or semiconductor nano-particles. Papers dealing with bio-sensing systems constructed by using the nano-materials coupled with enzymes and antibodies are welcome. The synthesis of self-assembled architectures and thin films comprising these materials and their use for bio-sensing is also within the scope of this special issue. Submission of papers on the construction of high-performance electrochemical and optical bio-sensing systems is particularly encouraged.

This special issue aims to promote exchange of ideas and knowledge of scientists and engineers working in the communities of materials science and bio-sensing.

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. 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 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs).
