Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is a collection of papers on cutting-edge research built on the importance of functionalization of carbon nanomaterials. The nanotechnology developed for sensor and biosensor design has applications in various fields, including electrochemistry, fluorescence, UV–Vis spectroscopy, surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS), surface acoustic wave (SAW), etc. Carbon nanomaterials benefit from a variety of physicochemical properties, and their functionalization advances the field through the formation of nanocomposite materials with catalytic efficiency and enhanced sensitivity. This special issue welcomes both reviews and original papers.

The following topics are of interest:

  • Green synthesis of carbon-based materials and their characterization;
  • Metal, metal oxide or heteroatom functionalized carbon-based materials;
  • Methods for fabrication and characterization of nanosensors based on functionalized carbon materials;
  • New electrode substrates that promote the adhesion of carbon-based materials for electrochemical sensors applications;
  • The development and application of highly sensitive sensors based on functionalized carbon-based nanomaterials.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Applied Sciences 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 2300 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.
