A special issue of Surfaces (ISSN 2571-9637).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 December 2021) | Viewed by 10729
Interests: chemical and gas sensing; giant dielectric materials; 2D nanomaterials; surface engineering; surface chemistry
In the recent years, the growing demand for sensing and/or monitoring in environmental and biological systems has led to the development of new chemical sensing technologies. These emerging chemical sensors have been employed in different areas, ranging from air quality monitoring for toxic and explosive gases up to biomarker species in the diagnostics of human diseases, among others. Thus, this Special Issue is devoted to reports of relevant scientific and technological developments on the processing, manufacturing, and evaluation of chemical sensors. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, novel synthesis routes or approaches aiming improved sensing performance, advances in the manufacturing of nanosensor-based devices, in situ and in operando characterization approaches for sensing mechanisms, and theoretical and computational studies in sensing phenomenology, among others. Submissions describing sensors based on SMOx, polymers, carbon, biological materials, and 2D-nanomaterials, among others, using electrical, electromagnetic, chemical, and optical principles are encouraged.

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. Surfaces is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1400 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.
