Themed collection on Analytical Nanoscience – open for submissions

We are very pleased to announce a new Analyst themed collection focusing on analytical nanoscience, guest edited by Analyst Associate Editor Professor Jun-Jie Zhu (Nanjing University), Tim Albrecht (University of Birmingham), Karen Faulds (University of Strathclyde) and Russ Algar (University of British Columbia).

The theme includes, but is not necessarily limited to, the application of nanomaterials and nanotechnology to enable chemical and biological analysis, sensors, and imaging; methods for the fundamental characterization of nanomaterial structure and properties; bionanotechnology; detection or characterization of nanomaterials in the environment or biological matrices; and spectroscopies and imaging methods with nanoscale resolution.

We invite submissions of articles or reviews on topics across this broad theme.

Accepted articles will be collated in an online collection as soon as they are accepted and in the themed collection as a whole and will be promoted as a complete collection in Summer/Autumn 2020.

The submission deadline for this collection is 31st March 2020.

If you’re interested in submitting to the collection, please contact the Editorial Office.

We have compiled a collection of recent papers and reviews published in Analyst on this topic. Below is a selection of these articles – the rest can be read here and are available free to access* until 31st October 2019.
