The detection of biological and chemical species plays an important role in various applications, including public health, food safety, environmental monitoring, homeland security, and energy. To improve the sensing performance (e.g., sensitivity, selectivity, stability) in molecules detection, various sensing materials in nanoscale and novel sensing strategies have been employed. In particular, recent developments in biotechnology and nanotechnology have led to witnessing the detection of biological and chemical species with significantly enhanced sensing performance. Therefore, this Special Issue will highlight recent advances of science and technologies in the detection of chemical and biological species, ranging from chemistry and chemical and biomedical engineering to environmental engineering, material science and engineering, energy sustainability, etc.
In this Special Issue, we solicit review articles and original research papers covering all aspects of the detection of biological and chemical species. Topics of primary interest include but are not limited to all kinds of chemical and biological sensors based on various sensing elements (biological, organic, and inorganic materials in macro-, micro- and nanoscale). Novel sensing technologies and platforms with enhanced sensitivity and selectivity 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 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 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.
