Special Issue Information

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

Abstract
A novel impedimetric microsensor based on a double-layered imprinted polymer film has been constructed for the sensitive detection of the herbicide, glyphosate (GLY), in water. It is based on electropolymerized polypyrrole films, doped with cobaltabis(dicarbollide) ions ([3,3′-Co(1,2-C2B9H11) [...] Read more.
A novel impedimetric microsensor based on a double-layered imprinted polymer film has been constructed for the sensitive detection of the herbicide, glyphosate (GLY), in water. It is based on electropolymerized polypyrrole films, doped with cobaltabis(dicarbollide) ions ([3,3′-Co(1,2-C2B9H11)2]), as a solid contact layer between the gold microelectrode surface and the molecularly imprinted chitosan film (CS-MIPs/PPy/Au). Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) was used for the characterization of the CS-molecular imprinted polymers (MIPs)/PPy/Au in the presence of GLY concentrations between 0.31 pg/mL and 50 ng/mL. Experimental responses of CS-MIPs/PPy/Au are modeled for the first time using an exact mathematical model based on physical theories. From the developed model, it was possible to define the optimal range of the parameters that will impact the quality of impedance spectra and then the analytical performance of the obtained microsensor. The obtained microsensor shows a low detection limit of 1 fg/mL (S/N = 3), a good selectivity, a good reproducibility, and it is regenerable. Full article

Chitosan is a biopolymer derived from chitin. It is a non-toxic, biocompatible, bioactive, and biodegradable polymer. Due to its properties, chitosan has found applications in several and different fields such as agriculture, food industry, medicine, paper fabrication, textile industry, and water treatment. In addition to these properties, chitosan has a good film-forming ability which allows it to be widely used for the development of sensors and biosensors. This review is focused on the use of chitosan for the formulation of electrochemical chemosensors. It also aims to provide an overview of the advantages of using chitosan as an immobilization platform for biomolecules by highlighting its applications in electrochemical biosensors. Finally, applications of chitosan-based electrochemical chemosensors and biosensors in food safety are illustrated. Full article
