Since its discovery, 2D graphene has been attractive due to its appealing properties, and the family of 2D materials is expanding day by day with new members such as transition metal chalcogenides, carbides, oxides, black phosphorus, boron nitride, etc. The alluring physicochemical properties of this class of materials include the high specific surface area, high electron conductivity, catalytic activity, and mechanical strength, which make them attractive for various applications. Of particular interest are their potential for bioelectronics and biosensing applications.
Taking note of the current vast interest in the viability of 2D materials and prevailing challenges for real device fabrication, this Special Issue aims at assembling original research articles, reviews, and prospective articles on the various opportunities for these materials for bioelectronics and biosensing. New concepts focusing on boosting the sensing parameters by manipulating the surface chemistry of 2D materials are highly encouraged. This Special Issue will include (but is not limited to!) the following points:
- Studies on the synthesis, characterization, and biosensing abilities of new 2D materials and composites.
- Surface engineering of 2D materials towards boosting its bioelectronics and biosensing abilities.
- Bioelectronics and biosensing device fabrication—current challenges and prospects for 2D materials.
Two-dimensional materials-based biosensing devices for healthcare monitoring and environmental remediation, e.g., sensing glucose, blood pressure, DNA, RNA, and cancer cells; the detection of different pathogens, viruses, and bacteria; the detection of major water contaminants; etc.

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.
