Open Special Issue: Chemosensors MPDI (Open Access)

Dear Colleagues,

Light and colors are important analytical tools, useful for the detection and quantification of different analytes, since the beginning of times. In fact, fluorescence was already used by the first time for the determination of numerous and diverse organic and/or inorganic components with great sensitivity and selectivity.

Nowadays, many sensing-based emissive and colorimentric materials are effectual methods for the detection of trace and ultra-trace amounts of contaminants and inorganic/organic components in complicated matrices.

The guest editors cordially encourage you to submitted your research paper devoted to “Fluorescent and Colorimetric Chemosensors” and to contribute to this Special Issue devoted to this fascinating research topic, discussed at the BIOSCOPE Caparica Conference Series #IC3EM; #PTIM; #IC3TC.

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. Chemosensors 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 350 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.
