Chemical sensors based on quasi-one-dimensional nanostructured materials

Editors: Prof. Elisabetta Comini and Dr. Dario Zappa
University of Brescia, Italy
This thematic issue will present a comprehensive overview on the latest developments in the field of chemical sensors, specifically with regard to the promising approaches when 1D nanostructures are employed. Recent advances will be addressed, including fabrication techniques, growth mechanisms of novel high-performance materials with improved properties, and advanced processing technologies.

Keywords: 1D nanostructures; organic and/or inorganic materials; chemical and gas sensors; synthesis and characterization of 1D materials for chemical sensing; nanotechnology for sensors; gas–nanomaterial interactions; metal oxide nanowires and/or nanotubes; carbon- and dichalcogenide-based materials; composites materials

Submission Deadline: March 1, 2019
