Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues, 

Gas detection plays a key role in many areas like environment monitoring, industrial control, security, and food/drug qualification, expediting the development of relevant science and technology. Nanotechnology introduces new challenges and opportunities in developing and innovating gas detection techniques, especially for metals and metal-oxide-based gas sensors. Nanostructured materials with various dimensions and morphologies have a high surface-to-volume ratio and good porosity, enabling gas sensors with higher sensitivity and reliability than their conventional counterparts. In addition, nanotechnology greatly facilitates the microminiaturization of sensor size from the centimeter to the nanometer scale, allowing the integration of gas sensors with advanced electronics to expand their applications into more fields.

This Special Issue of Nanomaterials aims to present state-of-the-art research on “Nanostructured Metal and Metal Oxides-Based Gas Sensors” with a broad scope, including the exploration of new gas sensing materials, the investigation of sensing mechanisms, the design and optimization of novel sensor structures, algorithm development for sensing data processing, as well as related applications. We are pleased to invite leading researchers to report their recent research findings in this area, including original research articles and reviews.

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. Nanomaterials 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 2900 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.
