Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent decades, there has been a significant amount of research conducted in the areas of science and technology related to nanocomposites, their manipulation, and their integration into nanoscale devices. Nanocomposites are a type of material that is constructed by hybridizing standard materials with nanoparticles. Concerning the unique characteristics that nanocomposites possess, their application has expanded to a variety of subfields within engineering and technology. They are helpful in an array of specialized industries, including automotive, sensors, batteries, cathodes, computers, and other cutting-edge fields such as bioengineering. Nanocomposite science and technology is an extremely timely and highly interdisciplinary field that demands the collaboration of chemists, physicists, engineers, and biologists. Nanocomposites have been explored for their ability to encapsulate and protect drugs, and to target specific cells or tissues. Nanocomposites can also be used in biosensors, where the incorporation of nanoparticles can improve the sensitivity and selectivity of the sensor. The properties of nanocomposites can be tailored by selecting appropriate matrix materials and nanoparticles, allowing for the creation of materials with specific and desired properties.

This special issue on “Research on Nanocomposite in Chemical and Biological Engineering” targets original and novel research products on nanocomposite.

Research papers and reviews, not limited to, are welcome in the following areas:

  • Structure, synthesis and investigation into the properties of Nanocomposites
  • Applications of nanocomposites in environmental remediation, membrane production and catalysis
  • Nanocomposites for smart drug delivery and biomedical applications
  • Nanocomposites in chemical sensors and biosensors
  • Nucleic acid based nanocomposites and their applications in biomedicine
  • Applications of bionanocomposites in high-tech agriculture
  • Applications of nanocomposites in energy and energy transformation

High-sensitivity biomedical sensors could make it possible to detect and classify chemical and biological species in a variety of applications, from disease diagnosis to medication discovery, thus, boosting the likelihood of life-saving intervention. Synthesized nanowires have already produced advancements in a variety of sectors, including biological sensors over the last decade. When compared to macro-sized materials, the nanowires’ large surface area-to-volume ratio increased sensitivity. Their applications for biomarker, viral, and DNA detection, as well as drug discovery, are also discussed. Self-powering, reusability, sensitivity in high ionic strength solvents, and long-term stability are all examples of recent developments. Shortly, the nanowire is likely to lead to major improvements in biomedical sensors. This review provides a full overview of the nanowire sensor’s working principle and production procedure. We have discussed how to produce nanowires that can be utilized as biosensors for different bacteria and pathogens, protease, DNA and RNA, neurotransmitters, and chemical compounds. Biosensing technology has dramatically improved because of the introduction of nanowires in biosensors. This is a result of the application of new biorecognition components and transducers, improvements in the manufacture, design, and miniaturization of nanostructured devices at the micron scale, and unique approaches for the synthesis of nanowires. The versatility, robustness, and dynamic nature of sensing technologies have all improved thanks to the usage of nanowires. Full article
