Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the rapid development of modern society, environmental toxic gases have become the bottleneck that hinders sustainable development. For instance, nitrogen dioxide (NO2) in the air is not only the main component of haze, but also the precursor of PM2.5 and acid rain. Aside from the toxic gases in the atmosphere, the constituents and concentration of the respiratory gases can serve as biomarkers to provide a large amount of biochemical and physiological information for disease diagnosis and earlier intervention. Therefore, highly-efficient detection of toxic gaseous pollutes in our ecological system and exhaled chemicals from respiration is critical to promote the circular economy and livelihood quality as well as carbon neutrality worldwide.

The Special Issue on “Novel Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology in Gas Sensing Application” aims at collecting recent advances on nanostructured gas sensing materials and their novel application in different fields of interest. For this reason, this Special Issue will include a large variety of materials and related applications in gas sensors. Potential topics include (but are not limited to) the following five categories:

  • Novel gas sensing nanomaterials
  • Room-temperature gas sensors
  • Energy-motivated gas sensing technology
  • Respiratory analysis and exhalation detection
  • Flexible gas sensors based on novel nanomaterials and/or nanotechnologies

The submissions of research articles and review papers on the above sensitive materials and gas sensors are welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Nanomaterials 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 2900 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.
