Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The design and synthesis of structure- and function-specific nanomaterials has made great contributions to the development of novel sensors and biosensors for various applications in biomedicine, food analysis, environmental monitoring, gas sensing, and others. Recently, more efforts have been made to create hybrid bionanomaterials for promoting their sensor applications. For instance, many biological molecules like DNA, proteins, peptides, enzymes, viruses, and biopolymers have been combined with other functional nanomaterials such as carbon nanotubes, graphene, graphene-like two-dimensional materials, nanoparticles, quantum dots, and some others to form functional hybrid bionanomaterials, which have also shown wide applications for the fabrication of electrochemical, electronic, fluorescent, spectroscopic, colorimetric, and mechanical force sensors for the detection of metallic ions, drugs, small molecules, biomacromolecules, cells, cancer biomarkers, and gases.

To present recent advancements in this developing field, here we would like to invite contributions from scientists who are actively involved in research related to the design, synthesis, and sensor/biosensor applications of various hybrid bionanomaterials.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.
