This Special Issue of Electronics is intended to publish peer reviewed scholarly research work on Organic Materials and Organic Sensors that can be applied in Biomedical Applications.
Recent research developments show that organic polymer material (conducting polymer and organic semiconductor) properties are competent to those of conventional inorganic semiconductors and possess virtues such as flexibility, are easy and cheap to synthesize, and are green processing. A number of materials have already been implemented in commercial electronic devices, especially in displays and sensors. Many organic materials exhibit good biocompatibility and interact with biological samples, and, hence, are excellent candidates for numerous biological and medical applications, such as electrochemical biosensors, sensing ‘skins’, thermal sensors, electrically functionalizable disposable sensors, flexible wet sensors, and can also transmit power and data wirelessly.
This special volume, entitled “Organic Materials and Sensors for Biomedical Applications”, invites papers highlighting reviews and original research work in the following areas:
- Organic Materials suitable for Biomedical Applications
- Organic Semiconductors and Biosensors
- Organic Biomedical Electronics/Devices

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. Electronics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 1800 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.
