Message from the Guest Editors
Nanostructured materials have been developed in the last few decades. The unique properties of these materials, such as quantum size and high surface-to-volume ratio effects, make them attractive and powerful objects for fundamental research and potential new directions. Nanomaterials allow the measurement and monitoring of harmful substances and a variety of biological signals by various techniques, which can further allow practical applications in analytical science related to biology, biomedicine, chemistry, the environment, and food, etc.
The common types of smart and multifunctional nanomaterials used in sensors and analytical techniques are microfluidic assay devices (µFADs), micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS), optical sensors, electrodes, force or pressure sensors, stretch sensors, temperature sensors, magnetic relaxing sensors, etc.
These nanomaterials can help improve the performance and broaden the applications of analytical techniques in assuring the safety and quality of food and pharmaceuticals, developing new methodology approaches, facilitating physicians to diagnose diseases, supporting the legal process, as well as providing measurements and directions to trade and commerce. We aim to construct a research platform to bridge materialogy with analytical science and other regulations.
This research topic covers papers related to the development and use of smart and multifunctional nanomaterials related to their applications in food safety and control. We accept original, technical, or review papers on (but not limited to) the following topics:
- Novel nanomaterials for analytical concepts, mechanisms and detection principles;
- Development of nanomaterial-based chemical sensors and biosensors, including electrochemical, optical, thermometric, magnetic transducer or transducing microsystems;
- Advances in fabrication technologies for chemical sensors, biosensors, chip-based detection devices;
- Nanomaterial-based analytical techniques in chemistry, biology, food science, environment, etc.
