As the Guest Editor of the Special Issue of Membranes titled "New Phenomenological Findings in RO/NF applications”, I am honored to invite you to submit your next research paper or review article for inclusion in this Special Issue.
In this Special Issue, we aim to provide a forum for publishing papers that advance our understanding of specific separation phenomena in a variety of applications.
Our focus in this issue is in the area of new insights and separation properties of RO/NF membranes in isolating and concentrating systems at high osmotic pressures that require high operating pressures of up to 64 bar or even higher to be applied during such applications. Publications are expected to cover the broad aspects of the science and technology of the separation mechanism, selectivity, and unusual rejection phenomena in chemical, pharmaceutical, and food industry applications. The articles in this issue will also aim to illustrate some of the current developments in the field.
Energy consumption in industrial processes is already a major concern today and will continue to be in the near future. Here, membranes offer an energy-saving alternative to conventional separation processes with phase changes in order to enrich or concentrate the substances to be recovered as much as possible.
In the isolation and recovery of dissolved products from dilute solutions, high-pressure membrane processes such as nanofiltration (NF) and reverse osmosis (RO) are considered to be the most promising, as they not only enrich substances without phase change with the energy input required in the process, but in particular, they also allow them to be obtained at higher concentrations.
In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.
Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Samhaber
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.
