Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue, titled “Electrochemical Sensors and Biosensors for Environmental Detection”, focuses on the development and application of cutting-edge electrochemical biosensor technology in environmental monitoring and analysis. Electrochemical biosensors are powerful tools that combine the specificity of biological recognition elements with the sensitivity of electrochemical transducers to detect and quantify various environmental analytes. This Special Issue explores a wide range of topics, including sensor design, fabrication, electrode material and optimization, as well as their utilization for the detection of pollutants, pathogens, and other environmental contaminants. The research articles to be published in this Special Issue should delve into the advances of sensor materials, immobilization techniques, and signal amplification methods, contributing to the development of highly selective and sensitive biosensors for environmental monitoring. These biosensors play a critical role in ensuring environmental safety, sustainable resource management, and the protection of ecosystems.

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. Chemosensors 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.

This work presents the detection of hypoxanthine (HXA), a purine derivative that is similar to nucleic acids who overconsumption can cause health issues, by using hydrothermally synthesized cerium phosphate (CePO4) followed by a sonochemical approach for CePO4 decorated with a functionalized carbon nanofiber (CePO4@f-CNF) nanocomposite. The formation of the nanocomposite was confirmed with X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and energy-dispersive spectroscopy (EDS). A CePO4@f-CNF nanocomposite is used to modify a glassy carbon electrode (GCE) to analyze the electrochemical detection of HXA. Cyclic voltammetry (CV), Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS), and Differential pulse voltammetry (DPV) were used to examine the electrochemical properties of the composite. As a result, the modified electrode exhibits a larger active surface area (A = 1.39 cm2), a low limit of detection (LOD) at 0.23 µM, a wide linear range (2.05–629 µM), and significant sensitivity. Therefore, the CePO4@f-CNF nanocomposite was used to study the real-time detection in chicken and fish samples, and it depicted significant results. Full article
