Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The development of new, innovative, and advanced functional nanomaterials with controlled features and the resulting devices at a nanometer scale are the core of research, development, and innovation. Including various other areas, the development of sensing devices using functional nanomaterials is one of the most important research areas. The progress of nanotechnology provides a platform for fine-tuning materials for highly efficient sensor applications. Efficient sensors based on functional nanomaterials offer many benefits such as a small size, low weight, low power consumption, and enhanced sensitivity. These characteristics make it possible to apply sensors in many fields, including health care, military, industrial control and robotics, networking, communications, environmental monitoring, and so on.

 By organizing this Special Issue, we are inviting the sensor community to contribute original, unpublished research/review articles and short communications. This Special Issue is focused on the synthesis and characterization of functional nanomaterials for sensing applications. Furthermore, the modification of sensing characteristics by tailoring nanomaterial properties is of great interest in this Special Issue.

The topics for this Special Issue include (but are not limited to):

  • Synthetic strategies for new sensing nanomaterials;
  • Nanomanufacturing of thin film-based sensors;
  • Nanowires and nanoparticles as sensors;
  • Nanomaterials in pressure sensors;
  • Gas sensing with nanomaterials;
  • Selective detection of biomolecules;
  • Nano-biosensors;
  • Theoretical studies of sensing behavior;
  • Nanomaterial-based physical sensors;
  • Magnetic nanosensors;
  • Integration of nanosensors;
  • Future sensor technology with nanosensors.

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. 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.
