The combination of organic and inorganic materials with integrated devices is enabling a wide range of applications, from telecommunications to biological and chemical sensing. One of the reasons for this broad impact is the diversity of available materials, which allows researchers to develop devices with previously unachievable performance and characteristics. The aim of this special issue is to highlight many of these novel devices, focusing on applications in biological and chemical sensing. Papers addressing advances in sensing technologies as well as innovative materials systems are sought, including but not limited to the following areas: sensor devices and sensing systems for medical and environmental detection; organic and inorganic materials for sensing; novel approaches for biological and chemical detection; and innovative surface functionalization schemes.
Both review articles and original research papers relating to the application of organic/inorganic materials in sensors and transducers are solicited. There is particular interest in papers that describe enabling materials for sensing systems and devices.

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.
