Advances in membrane technologies have increased in recent years due to the need to address different applications worldwide. In particular cases, there are a variety of studies that demonstrate the great utility and versatility that membrane technologies display, providing solutions to needs that we are faced with daily. One of the challenges worldwide is to be able to eliminate different organic and inorganic polluting substances from aqueous systems, which cause serious environmental and human health problems, thus having an impact on economic losses around the world.
In this Special Issue entitled "Advanced Membrane Technologies in Removal of Pollutants in Aqueous Systems", we seek contributions in the field of advancements in membrane technologies with applications in the removal of contaminants in water, especially the removal of emerging contaminants of organic origin, such as antibiotics, endocrine disruptors, dyes, analgesics, and pesticides, among others, and contaminants of inorganic origin, such as heavy metals, oxyanions, etc. However, we will also accept manuscripts in the field of membranes applied to desalination processes and applications of other types of pollutants, including the synthesis and characterization of membranes/(nano)composite membranes, as well as hybrid methods with membranes.
In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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.
