A number of applications require the operation of the membrane under elevated pressure difference across the membrane, such as reverse osmosis of high salinity water, gas-liquid membrane contactors for the removal of carbon dioxide (e.g. pre-combustion capture), and other gases. Besides, the utilization of various membrane processes for underground or sub-sea applications is currently exploring, which are also attributed to the selective mass transfer across the membrane at high pressures. Increasing the transmembrane pressure, on the one hand, should increase the flow but, on the other hand, it changes the structure and properties of the membrane due to deformation and possible conformational rearrangements (polymers). Both the properties of the mixtures to be separated and the interaction of the mixture components with the membrane material may also change. The proposed issue is focused on the coverage of works devoted to the study of novel high-pressure membrane applications, including the transport and structural properties of membranes at high pressures (up to 200 bar).

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.
