Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Ion-selective sensors allow for the determination and monitoring of the activity/concentration of a high number of inorganic and organic ions in different samples, which make them very attractive for their applications in several fields, such as environmental, clinical, pharmaceutical and industrial analyses. Several transduction principles such as potentiometry (ion-selective electrodes), ion-transfer voltammetry, amperometry, coulometry, photometry and fluorimetry have been used. Some research topics include fundamental and mechanistic studies, incorporation of new ionophores, transducer materials for solid-contact ion-selective electrodes, wearable ion-sensors, point-of-care and in-field applications, as well as electronic tongues, among others.

  • This Special Issue covers new research on many of the aspects mentioned above and others related.

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 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.

Intense interest in reference electrode design and fabrication has recently been enriched with the application of 3D printing of electrodes with salt-loaded PVC membranes. This type of material is attractive in sensor technology and is challenging to implement in 3D. In this report, several improvements and simplifications in the technology were focused on and supported by a fundamental electrochemical characterization. Full article
