Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Separation technologies are critical to almost every aspect of our daily lives, from the clean water and air we use to the medications we take. Materials-driven separation and purification technologies have the great potential to dramatically drive down the energy use, cost, and environmental impacts of the traditional separation processes that rely on the vaporization of one or more of the chemical components. Molecular-level design, synthesis, and characterization of multi-scale organic and inorganic pores/channels and functional interfaces that can enable effective discrimination of molecules as well as understanding the nontrivial structure–property–performance relationships can lead to improved separation in order to rationally design future materials. On the other hand, external and internal interfaces and interfacial regions play a decisive role in the critical performance parameters of many separation processes. Fine control of interfacial phenomena is critical to the effective implementation of separation techniques. Given this, this Special Issue is tailored towards addressing large-scale and impactful challenges that sit at the forefront of a variety of gas and liquid phase separations.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, 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 Editorial Office 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 single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
