Special Issue "Colorimetric and Fluorescent Sensor"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2016).
Sensor systems that provide the effective, rapid detection of target analytes constitute a major focus in supramolecular and biological chemistry. Specially, colorimetric and fluorescent probes have gained a great deal of attention for both analytical sensing and optical imaging because of their high sensitivity, fast response time, and technical simplicity. Thus far, there are many synthetic or manufacturing efforts for the development of colorimetric and fluorescent probes that can detect target analytes with a high selectivity and specificity. In this regards, various strategies, including internal charge transfer (ICT), Forster resonance energy transfer (FRET), excited-state intramolecular proton transfer (ESIPT), photo-induced electron transfer (PET), chelation-induced fluorescence enhancement (CHFE), aggregation-induced enhancement (AIE), monomer-excimer systems, etc., have been established. Currently, a number of probes have been developed for the sensing and imaging of small molecules, including cations, anions, and neutral species, and essential cellular components that are associated with human living systems in solution and biospecimens, as well astherapeutic and diagnostic applications. This Special Issue of Sensors will be dedicated to highlight these emerging technologies of colorimetric and fluorescent sensors. This Special Issue aims at presenting the latest technologies and methodologies developed in this interdisciplinary field of science. Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Colorimetric sensors towards metal cations, anions, and biomolecules
- Cation fluorescence sensors
- Anion fluorescence sensors
- Fluorescent sensor for biospecimens
- Internal charge transfer (ICCT) based fluorescent sensors
- Forster resonance energy transfer (FRET) based fluorescent sensors
- Excited-state intramolecular proton transfer (ESIPT) based fluorescent sensors
- Photo-induced electron transfer (PET) based fluorescent sensors
- Chelation-induced fluorescence enhancement (CHFE) based fluorescent sensors
- Aggregation-induced enhancement (AIE) based fluorescent sensors
- Chemodosimetric colorimetric and fluorescent 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.
