Special Issue "Advanced Polymeric Materials for Membrane Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 5 November 2023 | Viewed by 666
With its high separation efficiency, selectivity, low energy consumption and other advantages, membrane separation technology has shown great application prospects in wastewater treatment, seawater desalination, fuel cells, chemical separation and other fields. Polymeric materials have been considered key to membrane application, and polymeric membranes are widely used for both gas and liquid phase separation in industries. Polymeric membranes provide incomplete separation and often have chemical or thermal stability properties that are not sufficient for desired applications. Therefore, this Special Issue focuses on recent research advances in the development of polymeric materials that (i) can achieve higher selectivity as well as permeability, and (ii) are more resistant to end-use process environments.
This Special Issue will cover recent advances in the structure, properties and processing of advanced polymeric membranes. Submitted manuscripts will be fast-track reviewed. Research articles, review articles, perspectives, communications and letters are also invited.

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. Polymers 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 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.
