Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the last decade, the extent of effort dedicated in the field of nanomaterials has grown exponentially. This interest is due to their excellent electrical, optical, thermal, and catalytic properties and strong mechanical strength, ensuring that in recent years various nanomaterials (e.g., carbon nanotubes, gold nanoparticles, silicon nanowires, and quantum dots) have been extensively explored as innovative electrode materials for environmental and electrochemical sensing applications. The use of nanoparticles as transducers, parts of electrochemical sensors for antioxidant detection, adsorbents, analyte carriers, and markers in electrochemical immunosensors continues to arouse considerable interest due to their ability to detect and measure toxic metal ions, toxic gases, pesticides, and hazardous industrial chemicals with high performance in terms of sensitivity, selectivity, and simplicity. At the same time, there has been a growing need for more sensitive, reliable, and affordable sensors and detectors for applications from industrial monitoring to homeland security. This Special Issue on “Electrochemical Properties and Applications of Nanomaterials” will attempt to cover the most recent advances in nanostructures, concerning not only their synthesis and characterization, but especially their functional and smart properties to be applied in advanced sensing and detecting applications. The articles presented in this Special Issue will cover various topics, ranging from different techniques for their synthesis and morphological modification to the preparation of electrochemical sensors and their use in several areas of interest, such as environmental, industrial, and health-medical monitoring and sensing applications. Therefore, this Special Issue welcomes contributions from all researchers working on nanomaterials and their application in electrochemical sensing.

The Special Issue will cover, but will not be limited to, the following topics:

  • Nanomaterial-enabled sensors;
  • Multifunctional materials;
  • Enzymatic biosensors;
  • Metallic nanoparticles as sensors;
  • Electrochemical and optical properties of nanomaterials;
  • Sensors for environmental monitoring.

It is our pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews are welcome.

Accepted papers are published in the joint Special Issue in Nanomanufacturing or Nanomaterials (https://0-www-mdpi-com.brum.beds.ac.uk/journal/nanomaterials/special_issues/electrochem_nano).
