Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Conventional materials such as polymer films (Polystyrene, methacrylate, etc.), porous polymeric membranes (cellulose, nylon, etc.), sol-gels, etc., have long been used in sensor fabrication. However, these conventional materials alone have major limitations in solving current challenges in the field of sensors and biosensors. In recent years, it has been shown that the combination of nanomaterials such as metal colloidal nanoparticles, polymeric luminescent nanoparticles, core–shell magnetic nanoparticles, perovskite colloidal nanocrystals, carbon dots, quantum dots, etc., and sophisticated nanostructured materials such as luminescent metal–organic frameworks, organic and inorganic nonwoven nanofiber membranes, nanostructured composite materials, conducting polymers, imprinted polymers, dendrimers, etc., is a powerful tool for designing and fabricating innovative nanostructured materials with the right properties to solve current challenges in the fields of sensors and biosensors.

This Special Issue of the journal Nanomaterials collects original research and review articles on the design of nanostructured functional materials and their application in the fabrication of sensors and biosensors.

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.
