Special Issue "Chemical Sensors of Inorganic Cations and Anions"

Interests: schiff bases; hydrazones; pyridoxal 5’-phosphate; complexation; stability constant calculation; sensors
The progress of industry development and new challenges related to the increasing anthropogenic load, which include pollution of water, air and soil by different inorganic cations and anions, determine the importance of the development of new analytical techniques. The timely detection of inorganic ionic species may be crucial in preventing disruption to technological processes or the contamination of water bodies, thus neglecting the potential harm to human health and the economy. Therefore, this issue aims to discuss and analyze the efforts of researchers to create sensors for detecting the different inorganic cations and anions in an environment. The set of experimental techniques suitable for this aim includes, but is not limited to, spectrophotometry, IR spectroscopy, fluorescent spectroscopy, potentiometric or other electrochemical methods, kinetic analysis, etc. Authors are encouraged to submit papers that contain inexpensive solutions that can easily be implemented in practice. Critical reviews of the different techniques developed to date are also welcome.

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. Inorganics 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 2700 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.
