Sensors are instrumental analytical devices for the selective detection of different analytes. A sensor contains a selective layer that can react with a target molecule and a transducer that can transform this interaction into a physical signal (optical, chemical, electrical, thermal, etc.). Sensor technology has made much progress through the development of nanomaterials. The surface effects in nanostructures caused by the high surface-to-volume ratio are the major factors that have enhanced sensor performance.
This Special Issue will attempt to cover recent advances in nanostructured sensors. Indeed, the nanomaterial’s composition (oxide, metal, etc.) and characteristics such as structure, morphology, crystallinity (together with roughness, porosity, grain size, etc.) and their influence on the sensor performance, including sensor i) sensitivity, ii) selectivity, iii) the time interval required for the measurements, and finally iv) the stability, will be investigated.

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. Nanomaterials is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
