Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Functional nanomaterials involve various nanostructured objects: zero-dimensional (0D), 1D, and 2D nano-objects (nanoparticles, nanowires, nanotubes, nanosheets, and so on), as well as materials with nanostructured surfaces including metals, semiconductors, and organic materials. These nanomaterials possess a high surface/volume ratio and nanotip- and nanogap-induced physical effects, which lead to significantly different functional properties from those presented by the bulk materials, and hence have great potential applications in sensing and detection.
These functional nanomaterials for sensing and detection are mostly used as transducers in tools such as spectral devices and chemiresistive sensors. They are also employed in some nanosensor designs as capture agents (magnetic nanoparticles), signal amplifiers (plasmonic metals with nanopatterned surfaces for surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopic chips), identification elements (polymers for molecular imprinting), and more.
This Special Issue will attempt to present a collection of original research papers and reviews of the latest advances in the field of functional nanomaterials for sensing and detection.

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.
