Detection of important analytes for biological and environmental purposes has become the concept of interest in sensory research. In this light, many organic–inorganic hybrid systems have been investigated as promising candidates with exceptional analytical applications. Such hybrid systems manifest their sensor responses to specific analytes via optical fluctuations in luminescence, absorbance, electrochemical deviations, electrical property variation, mass change in surface, thermal and magnetic properties alteration, etc. Organic–inorganic hybrid system-based sensors may involve hybrid metal halide perovskites, metal–organic framework/organometallic complexes, organic or biomolecules functionalized metal nanoparticles/clusters/quantum dots, organic–inorganic composites, and hybrid semiconductor materials. Based on diverse mechanistic approaches, these materials may involve the discrimination of toxic gases, volatile organic compounds, metal ions, anions, pHs, biomolecules, and so forth.
The aim of this Special Issue is to deliver the recent advances on “Organic–Inorganic Hybrid Chemo- and Bio-Sensors” and to stimulate the development of such sensory probes towards specific analyte determination. The major scope of this issue will cover chemo- and bio-sensory applications of organic–inorganic hybrid architectures, such as hybrid metal halide perovskites, metal–organic framework/organometallic complexes, and sensory demonstrations of all hybrid systems with organic–inorganic combinations.

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 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 1600 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.
