Call for Papers-Supramolecular Sensors: From Molecules to Materials





Sensors & Diagnostics is delighted to welcome papers for its latest themed collection on ‘Supramolecular Sensors: From Molecules to Materials’, guest edited by Sankarasekaran Shanmugaraju (Indian Institute of Technology Palakkad, India), Robert Elmes (Maynooth University, Ireland) and Valeria Amendola (University of Pavia, Italy.


This collection aims to cover this broad field and will be accepting primary research articles, reviews, and communications related to supramolecular chemosensors for sensing and monitoring analytes such as anions, cations, small molecules, toxic chemicals, hazardous materials, and biomolecules, among others. The collection is intended to showcase recent developments in this important area of supramolecular chemistry research to inspire and attract the next generation of researchers into the field.


The deadline for submissions is 03 November 2023. Submit your work to this collection now!


Promotion of the collection is scheduled for late-2023, with articles published online as soon as they’re accepted.


Articles can be submitted via our website:  When submitting your manuscript, please mention that it is intended for this themed collection in the ‘notes to the editor’ box.
