Fabrication of Gas Sensors Using Biopolymer Composites

Special Issue Description

Biopolymers are very promising materials for very sensitive and selective gas and vapor sensors because of their abundance, biocompatibility, and special characteristics. For the development of electrical noses (e-noses) for a variety of applications in industrial, environmental monitoring, illness monitoring, defense, and public safety, new research initiatives are focusing on the creation of highly selective biopolymer composite receptors and new transducer platforms. Gas sensors with biopolymer films, self-assembled monolayers of biopolymers, carbon nanoparticle-doped biopolymer films, biopolymers hybridized with conducting organic polymers, as well as carbon nanotubes modified with biopolymers, have all been developed and tested in recent years for a variety of gasses and vapors. Biopolymer-based sensors are challenging conventional inorganic and organic sensors because they have reasonable sensitivity, selectivity, response time, and reversibility.

Manuscript Submission information

Manuscripts should be submitted online via the manuscript Engine. Once you register on APID, 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 email address:[email protected] 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 Double-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for the submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page.
