Chitosan is a biosourced polysaccharide, the most abundant biosourced polymer after cellulose. It is well known for its qualities of biocompatibility, its preservation of biomolecules, and its anti-fouling properties. The aim of this Special Issue is to be a forum for the latest research activities showing the role of the chitosan in the improvement of the qualities of chemosensors: sensitivity, selectivity, shelf lifetime in real environments, sustainability. It will publish relevant feature papers in this field, focusing on research articles, reviews, short communications, and trends.
We are seeking papers researching the following areas:
- Elaboration of chemosensors
- Elaboration of biosensors
- Molecularly imprinted polymers-based chemosensors
- Anti-fouling properties for implanted chemosensors
- Chitosan-based chemosensors for food control
- Chitosan-based chemosensors for environmental control
- Chitosan-based chemosensors for biomedical applications

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.
