Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In response to the rapidly evolving landscape of artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things, the gas sensor market has witnessed significant growth. Yet, the demand for enhanced gas sensor performance persists. Addressing this challenge, advanced nanocomposites emerge as a promising solution. The influence of material structure and composition on gas sensing performance is well established. Composite materials offer a pathway to bolster sensitive properties by tailoring both the material size and the morphology, as well as composition and proportion. However, the intricate mechanisms underlying the performance enhancement of composite materials demand collaborative research efforts.

Building upon the momentum of this Special Issue’s first edition, we continue to champion the exploration of advanced gas sensors realized through nanocomposites. This Special Issue welcomes original research articles, communications, and reviews that traverse a spectrum of subjects, including the following:

  • Synthesis of nanocomposites;
  • New nanocomposites for gas sensing;
  • Advanced sensing devices;
  • DFT calculations for gas sensing mechanism;
  • Advanced gas sensors for safety, health, and environmental protection applications.

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.
