Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The global water scarcity means that highly efficient water treatment technologies are urgently needed. Membrane separations have been widely used for water treatment, benefiting from high efficiency, low energy consumption, easy maintenance, and continuous operations. In particular, polymeric separation membranes have attracted growing interest in many industrial processes, such as wastewater purification and seawater desalination, due to their synergetic advantages, including compositional flexibility, structural designability, and low costs. Further development of polymeric membranes with high performance calls for progress in fundamental polymer science and membrane science. This Special Issue is devoted to collecting original research articles and comprehensive reviews on recent advances in the design, preparation, and applications of polymeric membranes in the field of water treatment. Topics will include but are not limited to:

  • Novel non-conventional polymers and -based membranes;
  • Modification and functionalization of conventional polymeric membranes;
  • New understanding of polymeric membrane formation techniques;
  • High-performance composite polymeric membranes;
  • Theory and simulations of mass transport in polymeric membranes;
  • Advanced applications of polymeric membranes in water treatment.

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.
