This Special Issue of Chemosensors focuses on the latest developments in sensors, sensor systems, and applications for electronic noses and electronic tongues. In part, it celebrates 20 years since the first commercialization of the electronic nose, and 35 years since the first research papers on the topic.
Over this period of time, the range of applications that these instruments have been applied to is considerable, covering medical, environmental monitoring, food and beverages, agriculture, security, process control, and mobile sensing. One of its key advantages is being able to simplify and classify complex chemical environments into a simple output, making it almost unique within analytical instruments. This is achieved by mimicking the biological olfactory and taste systems, where chemicals are considered as a whole, instead of individually—as humans do. It is a simple operation, has a relatively low-cost, and real-time operations have made it attractive to researchers. This is seen by the vast numbers of papers in this field, where researchers have been developing their own instruments in parallel to using commercial products.
In this Special Issue, we consider the entirety of the electronic nose and electronic tongue field, looking at new sensors and sensor materials, electronic nose development, data processing, and the applications of electronic noses to real-life applications, as we look to the future of this technology. We are particularly pleased to receive papers using electronic noses and tongues in the medical, environmental, and mobile sensing application domains.Dr. James Covington
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.
