Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have revolutionized the sensor field. By providing a high surface area and promoting ultra-fast electron transfer, CNTs have become indispensable in the advancement of novel sensors/biosensors. As support materials, they are functionalized with organic molecules, biocompounds and metallic elements, either by wrapping, physical adsorption or addition reactions, in order to improve the selectivity and sensibility of the sensor. Based on each of their properties, CNTs are suited for a wide range of applications: their mechanical properties make them ideal for pressure transducer and piezoelectric sensors; their high thermal conductivity is best suited for infrared sensors and thermometers; and their optical characteristics are applied in photodetectors. This Special Issue aims to gather all types of sensors based on CNTs to allow a birds-eye view of the field (through review papers) and to promote the most recent results on biomimetic-type sensors (through original articles).

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.
