Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Electrospun nanofibers produced via simple electrospinning technique have demonstrated vast interest in various fields due to its astonishing properties such as unique structure, high surface area and well-defined porosity. Its simple and controlled surface modification, incorporation of active species and easy handling are the key advantages that made the nanofibers a suitable candidate in various application such as catalysis, filters, sensors, energy and biomedicals. Recently, a growing interest in the potential use of electrospun composite nanofibers in sensing and biosensing applications. Some of the very importance electrospun composite nanofibers-based sensors are wearable biosensors, metal-ion sensors, drug molecules sensors, label-based and label-free biosensors, electrochemical sensors, etc. In this light, the aim of this Special Issue is to generate discussion on the latest advances in research on electrospun composite nanofibers-based sensing and biosensing applications.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Sensing of Biomedically Relevant Molecules and Drugs;
  • Sensing and Biosensing;
  • Sensing of Metal Ions;
  • Colorimetric Sensors;
  • Fluorescence Sensors;
  • Optical Sensors;
  • Chemiresistive Sensors;
  • Amperometric Sensors;
  • Electrospun Nanofibers for Environmental Monitoring;
  • Gas Sensors;
  • Wearable Biosensors.

The present review article discusses the elementary concepts of the sensor mechanism and various types of materials used for sensor applications. The electrospinning method is the most comfortable method to prepare the device-like structure by means of forming from the fiber structure. Though there are various materials available for sensors, the important factor is to incorporate the functional group on the surface of the materials. The post-modification sanction enhances the efficiency of the sensor materials. This article also describes the various types of materials applied to chemical and biosensor applications. The chemical sensor parts include acetone, ethanol, ammonia, and CO2, H2O2, and NO2 molecules; meanwhile, the biosensor takes on glucose, uric acid, and cholesterol molecules. The above materials have to be sensed for a healthier lifestyle for humans and other living organisms. The prescribed review articles give a detailed report on the Electrospun materials for sensor applications. Full article
