Special Issue "Development and Evaluation of Nanostructured Electrochemical Sensors"
A special issue of Nanomaterials (ISSN 2079-4991).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 10 December 2020.
Interests: Lab on a chip; electrochemiluminescence; electrochemical sensors and biosensing; point of care diagnostics; additive manufacturing; electro-materials; nanostructured electrodes
Over the last decade, electrochemical sensing has made enormous progress, with developments in creating sensors with improved selectivity, sensitivity, and versatility. One major factor driving this development has been the progress in the area of conductive nanostructured materials, nanoparticles, and nanofibers, giving access to sensing interfaces with tailored electrochemical and chemical properties, including enhanced electrocatalytic properties, enhanced surface areas (providing enhanced electrochemical area and area for the immobilization of biochemical sensing elements), access to novel biomaterial immobilization and signal transduction approaches, as well as the incorporation of tandem sensing strategies such as electrochemical Ramen spectroscopy. Examples of these materials include 2D conductive materials such as graphene and newly emergent 2D nanomaterials such as Xenes and other novel nanosheet-based materials, conductive fibers, particles such as hybrid metallic nanoparticles, and sensing interfaces including a variety of these materials providing synergistic effects.
For this Special Issue we invite investigators to submit original research articles, letters, as well as review and prospective view articles on fundamental developments in nanostructured electrochemical sensing interfaces, as well as new applications and material synthesis and characterization. This Issue will have a particular focus on novel electrochemiluminescence based biosensing strategies and nanomaterials for electrochemiluminescence, including low cost and point-of-care diagnostics.

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.
