Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The concept of aggregation-induced emission (AIE), first coined in 2001 by Professor Ben Zhong Tang, refers to a phenomenon that a unique family of luminogens are non-emissive or weakly emissive in solutions, but they emit intensively in aggregated states. AIE luminogens represent ideal alternatives to bioapplications incuding biosensing, bioimaging, and theranostics by virtue of their high brightness in aggregates, high photobleaching threshold, excellent tolerance for any concentrations, large Stokes shift, and prominent photosensitizing property as aggeates. Ascribed to the intrinsic advantages of AIE luminogens, AIEs have created an array of possibilities with great potential for high-tech bioinnovations. Significant breakthroughs and progress at a tremendous pace in this area have been witnessed over the past decade. This Special Issue is devoted to being a collection of significant advances in AIE material design and its applications in biosensing, bioimaging and theranostics.

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.
