At this time, the separation of great technological advances from nanotechnology is unthinkable, especially due to the development of nanomaterials with modular properties that can adapt to multiple global solutions related to energy, food safety, health, detection and remediation of contaminants, diagnosis, etc., all being areas of great impact. In recent years, the trend to develop rapid response techniques that allow for portable and flexible sensors has increased due to many of the base devices being commonly used in different areas, such as computers, cell phones, tablets, watches, clothing, etc. Others have been used in monitoring and detection interfaces for both biometric parameters and contaminating or toxic elements. The current COVID-19 pandemic, apart from its negative consequences on humanity, has also been a turning point for this fast race to develop monitoring and sensing systems. The backbone supporting such development is channeled through electrochemical detection devices based on nanocatalysts, which can be of enzymatic or nonenzymatic principle and yet provide an alternative that has opened an interesting area of research and development with high possibilities of real scaling applications globally. This Special Issue focuses on spearhead research allowing for the development of future devices where nanocatalysts expand the applicability of biosensors to touch health, food safety, toxicology, etc. The topics of interest are:
- Inorganic nanocatalysts for disease detection;
- Hybrid nanocatalysts in biosensors;
- Nanocatalysts for the detection of emerging drugs;
- Emerging pollutants;
- Neurotransmitter sensors;
- Nanomaterials for sensing cell damage DNA or ROS.
