Special Issue in Chemosensors: State-of-the-Art (Bio)chemical Sensors—Celebrating 10th Anniversary
Nanotechnology plays an important role in producing impressive advances in the field of biosensors. The emergence of nanostructured materials has opened new horizons in the development of next-generation biosensors; being able to control the design of the electrode interface at the nanoscale combined with the intrinsic characteristics of the nanomaterials engenders novel biosensing platforms with improved capabilities. In recent years, biosensors devices made with different materials and working with different modes have attracted particular interest due to their multiple applications, from clinical labs, to food analysis, environmental applications, protein engineering, drug discovery, and security applications.
The purpose of this Special Issue is to bring into focus this important research area and advances of biosensors and, more specifically, those related to nanoscale dimensions of metal nanoparticles, metal oxide nanoparticles, metal and carbon quantum dots, graphene, carbon nanotubes, nanowires, nanocomposites, nanoporous anodic alumina, mesoporous silica, porous silicon, and polystyrene nanochannels, that expand sensitivity and integrate several novel transduction principles such as enhanced electrochemical, optical, catalytic activity, and superparamagnetic properties.
Recent approaches to construct label-free nanostructured biosensors, including self-assembled peptide nanostructures as building blocks with a special focus on the development of point-of-care portable electronic devices for applications ranging from environmental analysis to biomedical diagnostics, are welcome.
This Special Issue aims at collecting both reviews and recent papers on this topic.

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.
