Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Nanotechnology has a significant impact on everything in our daily life. Nanomaterial-enabled sensors are being designed for highly sensitive and selective, fast response, inexpensive, and large-scale production with great reliability, multiplex-functionality, and high-flexibility sensing applications. High demand for the production of rapid sensors for a wide range of applications, namely health diagnostics, medical engineering, environmental analysis, food safety/quality control, and detection of toxic metabolites are of increasing interest for researchers worldwide. The use of nanomaterials in biosensors is very promising because they mediate current flow. Surface modification of the electrodes, based on various novel nanomaterials (such as carbon nanomaterials, metal nanoparticles, nanofibers, nanowires, and nanotubes, etc.), significantly increases the performance of the biosensors. Chemical stability, high current density, and complex surface chemistry result in desirable properties in nanomaterials for developing such sensors. Ultimately, this implementation will enhance the sensor sensitivity and stability.
We are initiating a "Call for Papers" for researchers who are interested in presenting new research work on advanced nanomaterial-based biosensors, particularly in the areas of new approaches of synthesizing, characterizing, and modifying nanomaterials for detecting analytes of interest in environmental and medical sciences. Such excellent works on Advanced Nanomaterials for Biosensors deserve high visibility and their presentation in open access journals, such as Biosensors, MDPI. This Special Issue will include high-quality articles by internationally recognized scholars.
We are inviting short communication, research, and review articles covering (but not limited to) the following topics:
- New modification processes of nanomaterials in developing biosensors
- Fabrication of carbon nanomaterial-based biosensors that include graphene, graphite, carbon nanotubes, quantum dots, diamond, and boron-doped diamond, dendrimers, polymers, and conducting polymers.
- CNT-based biosensors
- Graphene-based biosensors
- Development of quantum dot-based biosensors
- Current advances in semiconductor nanomaterial‐based biosensor
- Characterization of sensing properties of biosensor
- Designing new biosensing devices with improved performances for emerging applications
- Techniques used to impart specificity of the various types of biosensors
- DNA functionalization of gold and graphene nanomaterials
- Nanomaterial-based sensors for environmental detection
- Nanomaterial-based sensors for in vivo and in vitro applications
- Viruses detection such as coronavirus using biosensor

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 papers will be 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. Biosensors is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1800 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.
