Special Issue "Functional Materials for the Applications of Advanced Gas Sensors"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (28 February 2019)
High-performance gas sensors are becoming very important in the fields of reactor control, environmental monitoring, and health care technology with gas monitoring, and as an interface for IoT. The use of functional materials, such as nano-powders and nano-films, are one of the new key points for developing high-performance gas sensors. This Special Issue is focused on “Functional Materials for the Applications of Advanced Gas Sensors”. It includes gas sensors based on new or functionally-developed materials, uniquely-designed materials, and so on. The topics include sensors using nanomaterials, nanoparticles, structure-controlled materials, sensor devices based on micro semiconductor, newly designed solid-electrolyte, new sensing methods with electrochemical detection, sensing system, smart system, and gas sensing for health, safety and security care. The MDPI journal, Sensors, is soliciting high-quality papers that document original and significant research works in “Sensors for Advanced Gas Sensors”. We welcome your participation and look forward to your contribution to this Special Issue.

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.
