Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Nanomaterials with enzyme-like activity (nanozymes) have been widely employed in the construction of optical sensors due to their advantages of high stability, good biocompatibility, and ease of modification. To date, many nanozyme-involved principles and methods have been explored and applied in clinical diagnosis, environmental monitoring, food safety control, and forensic analysis. In this Special Issue, we take particular interest in manuscripts that discuss the principles and mechanisms of detection, rational design and relevant application in the optical biosensing of nanozymes. We invite authors to contribute original research and review articles that will stimulate further basic research on the development and application of nanomaterials with enzyme-like properties.

Potential topics suitable for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following: the catalytic principles and mechanisms of nanozymes, detection mechanisms and design principles, and nanomaterials with enzyme-like activities for optical biosensing.

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. Biosensors is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2700 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.
