Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Enzymatic sensors have been studied for many years now, but very few applications are currently available to the public. The most well-known utilization of enzymatic sensors to date is the glucometer that was developed over 40 years ago. This invention revolutionized the medical field and has shown the great potential of these sensor applications. Enzymatic sensors, however, are not limited to only the medical field. These sensors can be adapted in a myriad of areas including forensics, cyber security, and health monitoring. The specific nature of the bonds used in enzymatic sensor systems produces highly sensitive and reproducible results in short amounts of time with an extremely small amount of materials. Recent demand for enzymatic sensor systems has grown due to their great versatility, speed, ease of use, and cost efficiency.

This Special Issue on enzymatic sensors will present the newest applications and latest advances in enzymatic sensor systems and technology that utilizes these systems. Articles will range anywhere from healthcare and health monitoring to forensics and defense.

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.
