Nanomaterials could be classified into diverse categories according to their physical and chemical properties, dimensionality, production procedures, compositions, as well as homogeneity. Particularly, processing, morphological control, as well as physiochemical properties of nanomaterials, always affected performances of each other. Due to the possession of nanoscale dimensions and high surface-to-volume ratio, advanced nanomaterials have the capacity of showing a series of exceptional properties, such as chemical, mechanical, optical, and magnetic. Very recently, researchers began to pay a lot of attention to the design and synthesis of diverse nanomaterials, such as organic, inorganic, and organic-inorganic hybrid ones with controllable geometry, morphology, and topology, and aimed to explore various academic and industrial applications, such as sensing devices. Interestingly, during this research and development, scientists now focus a lot on the mechanisms of thus obtained sensor devices, such as “details behind the scenes”, which is a device often used in mysterious or science fictions.
Accordingly, you are invited to submit contributions that are related to the following topics:
- Morphological control over nanomaterials promoting their physiochemical properties for sensing;
- Design and synthesis of diverse organic-inorganic hybrid materials, as well as traditional inorganic ones enlarging the family of sensor devices;
- Applicable nanomaterials including MEMS/NEMS, metal oxides and emerging semiconductors;
- Exploring the mechanism of sensing devices behind the scene.

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. 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 2600 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.
