Special Issue "Potentiometric Bio/Chemical Sensing"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 June 2019
Recently, field-effect transistor (FET) biosensors have attracted global attention in the field of biosensor technology. An ion-sensitive FET (ISFET) has been commonly used as the basic structure of ion sensors and potentiometric biosensors, with various semiconducting materials being used as the channel, including both inorganic and organic materials (i.e., Si, GaAs, nanotube, and 2D materials). A platform based on the FET biosensors is suitable for a simple, miniaturized, and cost-effective system in the field of clinical diagnostics and pharmaceutical discovery.
The aim of this Special Issue is to provide the latest developments in the potentiometric bio/chemical sensor devices, such as FET biosensors, for personalized medicine and healthcare applications. In particular, various materials are being used as the channel of FET for biosensing, and a solution/gate interface is functionalized for the enhancement of the biosensing performance. Therefore, we welcome scientific work in the development of novel materials for sensors and biointerfaces for potentiometric bio/chemical sensing.
Potential topics and keywords are as follows:
- - Ion-sensitive field-effect transistor (FET)
- - Ion-selective electrode (ISE)
- - Electrochemical sensor
- - Potentiometric bio/chemical sensing
- - Flexible and stretchable devices for bio/chemical sensing
- - Application of nanowire, nanotube, and 2D materials for bio/chemical sensing
- - Biointerface for electrical bio/chemical sensing
- - Surface modification method for bio/chemical sensing
- - Simulation of ionic behaviors at bio/electrode interface
- - New devices for electrobiology

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.
