Special Issue "Nanomaterials Based Sensors"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 May 2021.
Interests: electrochemical sensors; carbon nanomaterials; nanobiosensors; nanomedicine
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Nanostructured materials in various types of dimensions have received particular attention due to their promising applications as sensors in health care, early diagnosis, and environmental monitoring. Nanomaterials enable the miniaturization and integration of sensors in microsystems, leading to practical and portable sensing devices for specific analytes. In recent decades, various types of sensors have been developed with the assistance of nanomaterials, including the unique high-surface-area-to-volume ratio; biomolecule load capacity; easy preparation and functionalization; and optical, thermo-, electroconductive, and catalytic properties.
Thus, the aim of this Special Issue is to publish and disseminate original research data, review articles, communications, and short notes that focus on new (experimental or theoretical) advances, challenges, and outlooks concerning the preparation, characterization, and application of nanomaterials for sensors development. We invite contributions on topics that include but are not limited to various state-of-the-art sensing technologies.

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. Materials 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 2000 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.
