Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nanomedicine is one of the obvious applications of nanomaterials and non-invasive nanotechnologies are expected to be among the first products to reach the market that will impact and improve significantly human health and welfare. The focus of this special issue to gather reports from leading experts in the various fields of sensory-systems based on nanomaterials, and to produce a volume highlighting state of the art and emerging technologies, such as breath-based diagnostics.

Since nanomaterials lead to higher sensor sensitivities, the need to detect ppb levels of analytes needed for diagnostic purposes can be met easily. The small size and flexibility of design for nanomaterials-based systems allows for portable and economic devices. The proposed special issue aims to highlight these advantages and to feature prototypes of non-invasive diagnostics.

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. Nanomaterials 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 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
