Special Issue "Paper-Based Sensors and Microfluidic Devices"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 October 2021) | Viewed by 14024
Interests: low-cost sensors and paper-based devices; electronic tongue systems; electrode arrays; electroanalysis
Two decades ago, paper-based devices were a niche research field, with few groups working mainly on point-of-care or low-cost applications and batteries. The golden days of paper-based electrophoresis and chromatography on paper were for many long forgotten. Now the literature is rich, with more than 1000 publications on the topic, and paper has become the main research theme for numerous scientific groups.
Classic examples of applications are nitrocellulose lateral flow assays similar to the pregnancy test and dipsticks derived from litmus paper. Apart from those, paper is used as part of high-tech microfluidic systems (e.g., as a passive pump), for prototyping, teaching, and for disposable sensors.
This Special Issue aims to provide a forum for the latest developments in the field, including but not limited to:
- Methods of cellulose modification;
- Integration of paper parts in sensor platforms fabricated from other materials;
- Paper microfluidic systems and MEMS;
- Paper-based sensors and biosensors;
- Paper-based devices as educational tools;
- Applications of the above systems.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2000 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.
