The demand for reliable chemical information on the state of our environment is continuously increasing, such an issue being of major concern to a variety of stakeholders ranging from the private citizen, who requests quick and reliable answers on the quality of our environment and foods, to regulators and controllers who must set and enforce limits and rules, through to industries which are required to produce safe products, using safe processes; all of which in order to avoid risks to human health and the environment. Obtaining chemical information on the state of our environment and food quality requires the availability of reliable and efficient analytical tools. Electrochemical sensors present unique characteristics which make them the optimal candidates to reach this objective. They take advantage of the immediate transduction of chemical information into an electrical signal so that they can be used both directly in the field and for decentralized monitoring. Moreover, they are sensitive and selective, can be used even in colored and turbid samples, and furnish information also on the speciation state of the analyte. The goal of this Special Issue of Chemosensors is to present the most recent advances in the field of electrochemical sensors and biosensors for environmental and food analysis, which have been achieved in recent years as a consequence of the most recent progress in the bio-and nanotechnology and functional materials field.

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 1400 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.
