In recent years, the development of highly sensitive and selective sensing platforms has been a focus of research, with the aim of improving public health and people’s well-being. In order to meet such aims, many researchers have introduced several multi-functional nanomaterials, which have high electrical conductivity; plasmonic, catalytic, magnetic and optical properties; and can be used to investigate high-performance sensing systems.
A multi-functional nanomaterial can play a role as a sensing channel that can directly or indirectly interact with a target material, including biomaterials, gas molecules, etc. Additionally, the sensing performance is determined by monitoring the change in its properties after interaction. Furthermore, the synergic effects of nanomaterials could improve sensing performance. Thus, to obtain high-performance sensing systems with excellent sensitivity, selectivity and reproducibility, functionalized nanomaterials are essential, with such nanomaterial-based nanosensors being able to contribute toward a better quality of life.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
