Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The exceptional separation properties of polymeric membranes in liquid systems that are either purely aqueous, alkaline or even acidic or contain organic solvents are the focus of interest here, and work with conventional NF and UF membranes will be considered.

However, solvent-resistant membranes such as PI and modified PI membranes will not be addressed here.

The special properties of these membranes in the separation of components in specific solution systems and their possible applications are the focus of this Special Issue.

In particular, this Special Issue seeks novel insights that can lead to an improved understanding or describe new properties of membranes in the treatment of such systems.

Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Samhaber

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.
