Special Issue "Molecular Imprinting Technology in Electrochemical Biosensors"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2023 | Viewed by 165
The history of molecular imprinting technology, pioneered by G. Wulff and K. Mosbach, began more than half a century ago. Nowadays, molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) have been considered as attractive, simple, and seemingly general materials for selectively binding numerous analytes ranging from inorganic ions, organic pollutants, nucleic acids, proteins, cells and even tissue, with similar affinities and selectivities to those of antibodies, enzyme, aptamer, or hormone receptors. Inspired by these great successes, in recent years, such a technique has attracted considerable attention from scientists engaged in sensor development. Various chemical sensors have been successfully prepared using MIPs as receptors, followed by appropriate signal transductions including capacitance, conductometry, amperometry, voltammetry, potentiometry, quartz microbalance, and spectroscopy.
In this Special Issue, we would like to focus on MIPs for electrochemical biosensing applications. We welcome the submission of original research or review articles on electrochemical biosensing applications based on MIPs.

Manuscript Submission Information
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. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short 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 thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Biosensors 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 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
