Special Issue "Chemical Sensors for Heavy Metals/Toxin Detection"
A special issue of Chemosensors (ISSN 2227-9040).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 June 2019
The huge release of toxins into the environment and multi-metal contamination have become significant problems nowadays in many countries and entire regions. The growing industrial impact, incorrect preservation of wastes, and, as a consequence, the massive proliferation of toxic microorganisms, are the main causes of widespread environmental pollution by toxins and heavy metals. The high content of these pollutants in soil, air and drinking water cause their consecutive accumulation in humans and this phenomenon has been connected to the insurgence of allergies, tumors, and other pathologies. The necessity of careful detection and frequent analysis of heavy metals and toxins, in order to protect humans and the environment against risks caused by them, are evident.
This Special Issue on “Chemical Sensors for Heavy Metals/Toxin Detection” will include the latest developments and advances in chemical sensors and related analytical methods for heavy metals and toxins assessment. New research and ideas for metallic pollutants and toxins detection, comprising novel sensing ligands and materials, functioning mechanisms, fabrication technologies, construction details, and practical applications for environmental monitoring, industrial control, clinical analysis are strongly invited to be a part of this Special Issue.

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).
