Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Gas and humidity sensing have undergone a significant transformation through the incorporation of advanced nanomaterials. The emergence of nanotechnology has provided unprecedented opportunities to enhance sensor performance and sensitivity. Nanomaterials have emerged as drivers for novel sensor development, offering superior selectivity, sensitivity, and response times when compared to those of conventional sensing materials. This research trend has generated substantial interest within both the scientific community and industry due to the escalating demand for efficient and dependable sensors for various applications, including environmental monitoring, industrial safety, healthcare, and consumer electronics.

This Special Issue is dedicated to exploring the latest advancements and innovations in employing nanomaterials for gas- and humidity-sensing applications. We invite the submission of original research articles and comprehensive reviews. The scope of this Special Issue includes, but is not limited to, the following areas:

  • The synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials with outstanding gas- and humidity-sensing properties.
  • The development of distinctive sensor structures utilizing nanomaterials, including micro/nanostructures, heterostructures, doping, nanocomposites, and more, with exceptional gas- and humidity-sensing capabilities.
  • The exploration of new sensing mechanisms and functionalities for gas- and humidity-sensing devices based on nanomaterials.

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.
