In the last two decades, advanced nanocomposites, which are multiphase materials containing two or more distinctly dissimilar components mixed at the nanometric scale, have shown great prospects in various sensing applications, including physical and biochemical sensing. Nanocomposites surprisingly show unique and sometimes enhanced properties (e.g., mechanical, thermal, electrical, optical, etc.) which are not possessed by raw materials. Importantly, these superior properties of advanced nanocomposites can be tuned by varying the components of raw materials and adjusting the synthesis process. Furthermore, the emergence of new nanomaterials with outstanding physical and chemical properties (e.g., carbon nanotube, graphene, black phosphorus, MXene, etc.) has opened up a broader road for the sensing application of advanced nanocomposites.
This Special Issue focuses on the development of advanced nanocomposites for various sensing applications, including (but not limited to) physical sensors (e.g., strain, optical, acceleration, magnetic, etc.) and chemical sensors (e.g., gas, humidity, chemical ion, etc.). Both original research articles and comprehensive review articles are welcome.

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.
