Special Issue Information
The area of applications of membranes is increasing every year. Membranes are used for the desalination and concentration of solutions, separation/extraction/recovery of certain compounds, energy production, controlled drug release, and other purposes. Irrespective of the context, ion transport is the main phenomenon which underlies the membrane application. Understanding ion transport within membrane(s) and in the surrounding solution(s) is essential for effective use of the membrane. Therefore, the aim of this issue is to take a step toward a better understanding of ion transport in membranes and membrane systems. All kinds of membranes are of interest: ion-exchange membranes, membranes for reverse osmosis, ultrafiltration, and other electro- and pressure-driven processes, including micro- and nanofluidic systems. Diffusion, migration, and convection, coupling of ion transport with chemical reactions, and concentration polarization are within the scope of the issue. Steady-state and nonstationary models with 1D, 2D, and 3D geometry are welcome. Discussions on the accordance between theoretical and experimental results are encouraged. Of particular interest are new experimental data that provide a fresh insight into the understanding of the behavior of membrane systems, and which can be the basis for future theoretical work.

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 2200 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.
