Currently, detection of gas-phase chemical species is becoming more important in order to maintain the safety of daily life and human health. In addition, an emerging application of chemiresistive-type sensors is diagnosing diseases via detecting particular biomarkers. The advantages of chemiresistive-type sensors, based on semiconducting metal oxides over other types of chemical sensors, include simplicity in operation, flexibility in mass production, potential for miniaturization, and low cost. Despite the recent advances regarding improvements in the sensing performance of chemiresistive-type sensors, ppb-scale detection, selective detection under a mixed gas condition, and being embedded into mobile electronic appliances with low power consumption still remain a great challenge. This Special Issue of Sensors will highlight the state-of-the-art technologies in the chemiresistive-type sensors. Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Self-powered chemiresistive sensors
- Low power chemiresistive sensors
- Nanowire sensors
- Nanofiber sensors
- Functionalization or decoration
- Graphene or graphene-loaded sensors
- 2D materials sensors
- Advanced nanostructured sensor materials
- New chemistry, new composite sensor materials
- Health diagnosis based on chemiresistive sensors

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.
