Special Issue Information
Membrane and adsorption technologies are solutions with great potential to avoid the high-energy consumption, secondary pollution, and complex chemical reactions involved in the separation field. Owning to significant advances in material synthesis, numerous classic and novel nanomaterials have been synthesized as membranes and adsorbents to achieve high performance of separation, such as silica, zeolite, MOFs, and carbons, where the pore framework and geometry could be specifically manipulated according to the properties of guest molecules. However, the understanding and exploration of the separation process in nanomaterials is still far from satisfactory. This is largely due to the inadequacy of the systematic research on this subject, where the essential relationship between the physical properties and chemical heterogeneousity of nanomaterials and their separation performance needs to be comprehensively revealed. Thereby, we are launching this Special Issue to call on nanomaterial and separation experts to explore the essential factors deciding the separation procedures in different nanomaterials.
The Special Issue on ”Exploration of the Separation Processes in Nanomaterials” aims to present recent advances that address the key challenges of membrane and adsorptive separation in different aspects. Topics include but are not limited to:
- Novel nanopore synthesis
- Molecular adsorption and transport
- Membrane and adsorbent design
- Computational fluid dynamics in membrane modules
- Application of the membrane and adsorption unit
- Fluid transport in a porous media
- Separation mechanism analysis in nanopores
Process simulation of membrane and adsorption separation.

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. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2300 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.
