Special Issue in Sensors: Electronic Noses and Tongues for Environmental Monitoring
Electronic noses and tongues, analytical devices based on an array of partially selective chemical sensors or biosensors and multivariate data processing tools, are often called biomimetic sensor systems or arrays as their design was inspired by biological sensing systems, primarily olfaction. They became popular analytical instruments during the last two decades and a wide range of applications has been reported, including the classification of samples according to the properties of interest, quantification, process control, and taste and flavour assessment.
Most of the sensors used in the electronic noses and electronic tongues are based on sensing materials that have nothing in common with biological receptors, which can result in the unsatisfactory performance of the sensor systems in some applications. Recently, the use of recognition elements of biological origin such as cells or tissues or based on bioinspired materials such as olfactory proteins or molecularly imprinted polymers have been proposed for sensor development, with the expectation that sensor sensitivity and selectivity characteristics would replicate that of the natural receptors.
In order to highlight the recent advances in the development of electronic tongues and noses and their applications, I would like to invite you to consider submitting a manuscript to our upcoming Special Issue, “Biomimetic Sensor Arrays”. The aim of this Special Issue is to gather a collection of papers dedicated to all aspects of biomimetic sensor systems, their design and applications with a particular emphasis on novel biomimetic sensing materials.

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. Sensors 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 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.
