Ion exchange membranes (IEMs) represent the key component of many electrochemical energy conversion and storage systems, including fuel cells, electrolyzers, reverse electrodialyzers, and batteries.
As charged functional materials, these materials allow a selective passage of ions between separate compartments in electrochemical devices. In the past years, research on IEMs has focused on improving the performance of these materials mainly in terms of conductivity, selectivity, and stability, among others, followed by testing and analysis in the prospective technology of interest. Thus, this Special Issue aims at bringing together some new developments in ion exchange membrane material design as well as application in some of the rapidly growing areas of interest related to clean energy generation, hydrogen production, and electrochemical CO2 reduction.

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.
