Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The unique physical, chemical and electrical properties—including the high specific surface area, high carrier mobility, high electrical conductivity, flexibility, and optical transparency—of graphene and its related derivatives make them ideal for biosensing applications. They can be easily functionalized and combined with various types of different nanoparticles, quantum dots, (bio)polymers and biomolecules, to form a diverse range of graphene-based nanocomposites. The fabricated graphene-based nanocomposites can be used as a compatible platform for the immobilization of biomolecules, such as enzymes, antibodies, DNA, RNA and aptamers to create highly sensitive and selective biosensors for the detection of a wide range of biomolecules. They can be also used as non-enzymatic electrode materials for the detection of clinically important biomolecules and biomarkers.

This Special Issue aims to highlight the unique research and development efforts, identifying different graphene-based nanocomposite platforms that have been developed for biosensing applications. Research papers, short communications and reviews are all welcome. If you are interested in submitting a review, it would be helpful if you would discuss this with the Guest Editor before submission.

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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2600 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.
