Special Issue "Synthesis and Characterization of Optical Sensors for Environmental Monitoring"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 May 2019
The environmental conservation of fresh water resources and the efforts to protect fresh water from hazardous contaminants have become primary priorities in many countries. The early detection and intervention of suspected pollutants are critical to the prevention of potential environmental tragedies. Early detection can be succeeded if a simple and sensitive measuring tool is developed to quantify contaminants in fresh water resources. For a Special Issue on this topic, we invite the submission of manuscripts covering all aspects of environmental monitoring, detection of water pollutants, and ion recognition, including: optochemical sensors, aptamer sensors, biosensors, and the design and fabrication of chemical probes or any other optical-based sensors. Both research and review papers are welcome.

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 1800 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.
