Taking into account the growing interest of fundamental science and applied materials science in graphene oxide membranes, we are planning to publish a special issue entitled «Graphene Oxide Membranes - Synthesis, Properties, and Application», and we invite you to participate in this project. Now days it is well known that graphene oxide membranes have an unique selective permeability for liquids, gases, and hydrated ions, and the membranes have a high potential for practical applications. It has been shown that the properties of these materials are largely dependent on their internal structure, which, in turn, can be controlled by the synthesis conditions. The time has come to combine our knowledge of the macroscopic properties of graphene oxide membranes with the results of studies of lamellar structure of the membranes, their orientational order, and the properties of substances intercalated into the inter-plane and inter-lamellar spaces.
We welcome both original scientific articles and review publications. Research areas may include (but not limited to) the following:
- Comparative characteristics of various methods for the membranes synthesis.
- Permeability of the membranes for various substances (liquids, gases, hydrated ions, etc.)
- Internal structure of the membranes (orientational order, lamellar structure, defectiveness, etc.)
- Dependence of the structure and properties of the membranes on characteristics of the graphite oxide from which they were made (method of the material synthesis, composition of functional groups, defects in the structure of graphene planes, etc.)
- Experimental and calculated data on the properties of substances of various nature intercalated into the inter-plane and inter-lamellar spaces of the membranes. Mobility of guest molecules inside the membranes and their interaction with the inner surface of graphene oxide is of special interest.
- Application of graphene oxide membranes in science and technology.

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.
