Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Metal nanoparticles (e.g. gold and silver nanoparticles) have long been utilized for various types of chemical and/or biological sensing applications. At the same time, much of the knowledge being gained for manipulating nanoparticle structure or composition has focused on multimetallic type nanoparticles. Such systems can display multiple properties arising from the individual components, but it is the observation of synergistic phenomena that is the most intriguing.

By taking advantage of such synergestic phenomena in multimetallic nanoparticles including alloy, core-shell, and other heterostructures, one can enhance the sensing propeties when these multimetallic nanoparticles are used as sensing probes.

This special issue aims to cover all various aspects, such as (but not limited to) novel multimetallic nanoparticles as sensing probes, new insights in synergestic phenomena in terms of sensing properties, and sensing applications of multimetallic nanoparticles.

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. 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).
