Special Issue "Advances in Metallic Nanostructures for Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS)"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2021.
Plasmonic nanomaterials including metallic nanoparticles or nanostructures have attracted a great deal of attention over the past two decades or more due to their unique optical properties, and have been used for a wide range of applications including surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS)-based sensors, super-resolution bioimaging, plasmonic photocatalysis and plasmonic chemistry, etc. In the early days of the field’s development, Ag and Au nanomaterials were intensively studied. In recent years, emerging nanomaterials of other metals or semiconductors (e.g., Cu, Pt, and 2D materials) have become readily available. With this background, many researchers have worked toward practical developments in SERS-based sensors using various kinds of plasmonic nanomaterials.
This Special Issue of Nanomaterials will attempt to cover the recent advancements in unique plasmonic nanostructures and SERS-based sensing applications, including chemical and biological (i.e., DNA and protein) sensors.

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 2200 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.
