Special Issue "Carbon-Based Nanomaterials and Sensor"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (7 January 2022).
Interests: carbon nanotubes (CNT); CNT chemistry; CNT networks; CNT polymer composites; hybrid polymer/CNT composites with Ag nanoparticles, graphene, carbon nanowalls (CNW); technology of gas and strain sensors; thermoelectric polymer composites, polymer composites and Joule heating
Carbon-based nanomaterials like carbon nanotubes, graphene, graphite flakes, graphite, carbon nanowalls, carbon fibers, carbon black etc., possess multiple exceptional properties, which make them valuable in various applications, for example, as carbon based electro-mechanical, electro-chemical and strain, temperature, humidity, vapors or gases sensors, biosensors, stretchable electronic skin, or at the same time usually they can pose multifunctional properties etc.
Carbon-based nanomaterials can be also used as dispersed particles in matrix or in the form of self-supported three-dimensional an inter-connected tangled network for example as CNT paper (buckypaper) embedded in matrix.
Currently an electrically conductive and elastic polymer composite materials or conductive polymer composites (CPCs) are in focus of material scientists all over the world. Their potential applications are in the area of wearable sensors for healthcare related use, soft robotics, smart textiles, structural health monitoring, or bio-interactive electronic devices.
The titled Special Issue aims to cover current experimental and/or theoretical studies, in the field of Carbon-Based Nanomaterials and Sensor. Materials fabrication routes, their characterizations, functionalities as sensors for different kind of stimuli or explanation of detection principles, are very 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. 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 2400 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.
