Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Carbon nanomaterials, with their unique properties such as a high surface-to-volume ratio, excellent electrical and thermal conductivity, and outstanding mechanical and chemical stability, have the potential to revolutionize chemical sensing technologies across various industries. Notable examples of carbon nanomaterials include carbon nanotubes, graphene, fullerenes, carbon nanofibers, carbon nanodiamonds, and other carbonaceous materials at nanoscale. This Special Issue, entitled "The Development of Chemical Sensing Applications of Carbon Nanomaterials", focuses on the latest advancements and innovations related to the synthesis and characterization of novel carbon nanomaterials, the design and fabrication of carbon nanomaterial-based sensors, and understanding sensing mechanisms. A particular emphasis will be placed on industry-relevant and emerging sensing applications in energy and environmental monitoring, the food industry, biomedical sectors, and military and security sectors. This Special Issue provides a comprehensive platform for researchers and scientists to share their findings and stimulate further research and collaboration.

We invite submissions of original research articles, review papers, short communications, and perspectives that provide new insights and cutting-edge developments related to the theme of this Special Issue. The aim is to stimulate interdisciplinary research and collaboration to address current challenges and advance the field towards the development of next-generation chemical sensing technologies in these critical sectors.

The scope of this Special Issue encompasses, but is not limited to, the following areas:

  • Chemical sensing applications—energy and environmental monitoring, food industry, biomedical sectors, military and security sectors, etc.;
  • Synthesis, characterization, and sensing mechanisms of carbon nanomaterials—new, hybrid, or composite materials, as well as existing carbon nanomaterials;
  • Design, fabrication, and performance optimization of carbon nanomaterial-based sensors;
  • Computational studies and theoretical modeling aimed at understanding and predicting the properties and performance of carbon nanomaterials in the context of the targeted sensing applications;
  • Identification of current challenges, bottlenecks, and future directions, opportunities, and potential breakthroughs in the development of carbon nanomaterial-based sensors.
