Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This issue of Sensors is dedicated to submissions related to recent advances in the area of potentiometry. This includes work on systems like novel ionophores, ion exchangers, ionic liquids, conducting polymers, single-walled carbon nanotubes, and multi-walled carbon nanotubes used for the modification of ion selective membranes. Micro- and nanoscale potentiometric systems for interrogating individual cells and synaptic clefts are being developed too. Moreover, planar microfabricated systems, solid contact devices, and molecular imprinted systems are also of interest. New views on the theory behind the operation of potentiometric devices in equilibrium and non-equilibrium systems are being sought too. Finally, the biocompatibility and sensor stability of ion selective electrode devices are of particular interest. This issue will prove to be a milestone in ion selective electrode literature.

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. Sensors 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 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs).
