Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Two-dimensional materials are ultrathin nanomaterials with exceptional properties. They show outstanding characteristics, including A very high surface-to-volume ratio, extent degree of anisotropic, improved surface charge. and adaptable chemical functionality. Different kinds of 2D materials have attracted attention: graphene and graphene-based 2D materials, transition metal dichalcogenides, layered double hydroxides, silicate clays, Boron nitride, MXenes, and transition metal oxides. They all offer outstanding physicochemical properties and excellent biological functionality.

The aim of this Special Issue is to assemble original research and reviews in the design of 2D-based materials, as well as the investigation of their structural and chemical properties for sensing and biosensing applications. This Special issue will go from the synthesis and the modification to the characterization and the application of 2D materials in sensor and biosensor fields. It will also tackle the design of different functional 2D materials with controlled chemical composition and the functionalization/modification of surfaces for the construction of sensor/biosensor devices. The design of flexible and stretchable sensors/biosensors will also be considered.

All new concepts targeting the optimization of sensor and biosensor parameters by tailoring the structural properties and surface chemistry of 2D materials in order to achieve increased sensitivity, higher selectivity, and enhanced stability will be examined.

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. Sensors is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
