This special issue of Nanomaterials will explore the use of nanomaterials in the development of new sensing materials and sensing devices. Nanoscale materials offer new, size-dependent properties in comparison to bulk samples of the same materials. These properties, i.e., electrical conductance, magnetic response, chemical interactions, in combination with the physical size of the materials provide new opportunities to provide sensitive and specific sensing of gases and liquids.
This issue will include reports on new materials, the characterization of nanomaterials to be applied to sensing, the development of sensing systems employing nanomaterials and applications of nanomaterials to the detection of specific chemical species.

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.
