Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Biochar is a charcoal material, which has gained attention for its diverse applications, including soil improvement, carbon sequestration, and water filtration. However, its potential as an electrochemical enhancer is an emerging area of research with promising implications. Biochar possesses unique electrochemical properties due to its porous structure and high surface area. These characteristics facilitate electron transfer processes and provide numerous active sites for chemical reactions to occur. Biochar-based electrodes have been explored for the development of electrochemical sensors due to their sensitivity to specific analytes. The high surface area and porous structure of biochar can facilitate the immobilization of biomolecules or other recognition elements, enabling the detection of target molecules with high sensitivity and selectivity.

This Special Issue covers the latest advances in biochar-based electrochemical (Bio)sensors development, focusing on all aspects of design, fabrication, and implementation strategies.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.
