Professor Moises A. Carreon focused on mission critical gas separations and provided bedrock research on the design of porous crystalline materials . He became convinced (and equally convincing) that nearly any gas mixture could be separated without massive energy inputs during cryogenic distillation . The fundamental strategies for separating gas mixtures over porous crystalline membranes—adsorption, diffusion, molecular sieving—guided his synthetic designs and resulted in many unique discoveries ranging from inorganic , metal organic , and purely organic membranes . His latest research efforts were focused on process intensification using membrane technology .
This Special Issue aims to provide state-of-the-art contributions on critical gas membrane separations, which were Moises’ main career focus and leading research area. Submissions are not limited to separation applications, but can include membrane material designs for separation purposes and membrane applications, including process intensification.
Moises was a man of great talent and ingenuity. He was held in the highest regard by his peers and known for his kindness, collegiality, grit, creativity, diligence, and collaboration. He was an avid supporter of minority STEM students and was a champion for Diversity and Inclusion at the Colorado School of Mines. He touched many people’s lives, and he left a lasting positive impact on them. He was a person who was so alive in every way. He loved everything he did, whether it was work or personal, and he truly lived his life to the fullest. Though he was very young when he left us, he contributed with many teachings and an important legacy to science and engineering. He will be sorely missed by his students, colleagues, friends, and family.

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. Membranes is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). 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.
