Carbon nanomaterials represent a new generation of materials having nanometer sizes. These nanostructures, characterized by the presence of sp2-bonded carbon atoms, can be classified based on the number of dimensions. For example, although their diameters are at least 1 nm, pristine fullerene and carbon nanoparticles can be classified as zerodimensional compounds, carbon nanotubes (single-walled carbon nanotubes, SWNT, and multi-walled carbon nanotubes, MWNT) as one-dimensional and graphene as two-dimensional. These classes of nanomaterials, including carbon nanoparticles, carbon and graphene quantum dots, graphene, graphene oxide, carbon fibers, carbon nanotubes, show exciting advantages with respect to classic single molecules, due to the combination of minuscule size and high surface area and have enormous potentiality for multipurpose uses, such as catalysis, medicine and biomedicine, and also sensing.
The target of this Special Issue is to collect the recent advances on this field (research articles and review), in particular on the detection of chemical and biological analytes having high impact on human life, including, but not limited to transition metals, organic and inorganic pollutants, chemical weapons, neurotransmitters, molecules or biomolecules related to important diseases, and metabolites.

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. Sensors 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 2600 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.
