Special Issue "Nanostructured Materials in Gas Sensing Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 October 2023) | Viewed by 1222
Due to several advantages, a variety of nanomaterials have been studied for gas sensing applications, including nanoparticles, nanowires, nanotubes, and graphene. These materials have been functionalized with various chemical moieties to increase their sensitivity and selectivity for target gases. The resulting sensors have been shown to have low detection limits, fast response times, and high stability over extended periods of use. Additionally, the integration of nanomaterials with microelectronic devices has enabled the development of low-power and highly miniaturized gas sensors. This has paved the way for their use in portable and wearable devices for the real-time monitoring of environmental and industrial gases. This Special Issue aims to collect papers on sensor-based nanomaterials for the effective detection of various dangerous gases. Authors are invited to submit articles that focus on selective enhancement, low power consumption, fast responses, and other aspects. Papers on the characterization and evaluation of sensing performance or the completion of gas-sensitive mechanistic discussions of experimental phenomena are also 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.
