Interests: biochemistry; bioanalytical chemistry; electrochemistry; biosensors and nanotechnology; materials science
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
The miniaturisation accompanying the revolution of all aspects of information technologies including worldwide digitalization have been influencing analytical chemistry. The time when mobile-phone producers will incorporate sensing and biosensing devices at great scale is coming, and would enable the analysis of numerous phenomena including vital signs, stress factors and even polluted environments.
Nowadays, electrochemical sensors and/or biosensors are able to detect nucleic acids, amino acids, proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, and various metabolites or food/environmental threats such as organic pollutants, metals and/or bio-pollutants, and the attractiveness of these methods and devices lies in their low cost, ease of use and in situ measurements. These devices also enable us to avoid laborious and time consuming sample preparation and provide an opportunity to perform real-time measurements.
We warmly invite you to contribute to this Special Issue with original research articles related to the use of electrochemistry and/or hyphenated electrochemical systems coupled with other detection methods in the form of sensing or biosensing devices for the detection/determination of ions or molecules serving as biomedical, environmental or food quality markers.

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. Molecules 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.
