Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The use of nanocomposites in the field of chemical gas sensors allowed scholars to demonstrate the dramatic improvements of the performance of various types of sensors, such as metal oxide, polymeric, carbon-based, electrochemical and others. Apart from quantitative effects, some new phenomena have been shown, for example, in the case of composite systems with hetero- and homo-junctions. The purpose of the present Special Issue is to collect the papers that demonstrate the innovation of the design and architecture of gas-sensing nanocomposite systems and the methods of  obtaining them, as well as addressing unresolved questions such as the synergistic effects of such systems, their evolution during operation and their long-term stability. In addition to the original research articles and review papers, summaries of the current body of knowledge in the field of gas-sensing nanocomposite systems and new insights into future research are welcome in the upcoming open access Special Issue.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Metal oxide nanocomposite systems for gas sensing;
  • Organic–inorganic composites and nanohybrid systems;
  • Carbon-based nanocomposites for gas sensors;
  • New modeling approaches for gas-sensing nanocomposites.

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.
