Special Issue "Advances in Chemical Imaging and its Applications"
A special issue of Chemosensors (ISSN 2227-9040).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2018)
Over the past several decades, chemical imaging has seen a dramatic increase in its application to numerous disciplines, driven largely by its ability to provide both chemical specific identification as well as the spatial distribution of the various components. This ability to spatially monitor the distribution and motion of specific chemical constituents within or on a sample can allow for site-specific treatment and/or monitoring and more recently has been exploited to correlate unknown relationships between different constituents. The inherent information associated with chemical imaging as well as recent technological advances that have improved both the spatial and temporal resolution of such analyses have resulted in the rapid and growing exploitation of chemical imaging for many different applications, including: food safety, space monitoring, biomedical diagnostics, forensic analysis, pharmaceutical monitoring, cellular analyses, defense and many more.
This Special Issue on “Advances in Chemical Imaging and its Applications” will provide an overview and critical assessment of the latest developments and advances in chemical imaging technologies (spectroscopic, electrochemical and mass spectrometric) and their application to various disciplines ranging from space monitoring to super-resolution chemical imaging of cellular/sub-cellular environments. Emphasis will be placed on both the new technological advances in chemical imaging (e.g., super-resolution imaging, etc.) as well as novel applications and implementation.

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 papers will be 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. Chemosensors is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 350 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.
