Special Issue "Electrochemical Nanobiosensors"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 28 June 2019
Investigations on nanomaterials have increased rapidly in recent years due to their size and shape-dependent physical, chemical and electrochemical properties, which make them extremely useful in sensing and biosensing applications. The size and the composition of nanostructured materials are advantageous over the corresponding bulk structure because a target binding event (i.e., DNA hybridization, immunoreaction or aptamer recognition) involving nanomaterials can have a significant effect on its electrochemical properties (revealed through voltammetric, potentiometric, conductometric or impedimetric measurements), offering novel options for bioanalysis.
The aim of this Special Issue is to focus on the most recent strategies and developments in this field. Papers should address the use of innovative nanomaterials and/or the study and application of novel electrical/electrochemical properties and/or signal amplification capabilities of such materials in the development of biosensors. Metallic/semiconductor nanoparticles, nanoporous platforms and 2D materials are among the cutting-edge nanomaterials expected to be explored in this Special Issue.
Both review articles and original research 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.
