Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the process industry, material separation accounts for over 50% of the total costs. The pore diameter of the nanofiltration (NF) membrane is 0.5–2.0 nm, and its molecular weight cut-off is 100–2000 g/mol. Similar molecule or ion separation processes could be achieved by NF based on its special mechanisms, including pore size screening and Donnan exclusion, etc.; however, in this special and complex separation scale, there are common problems, such as a low separation accuracy, complex large-scale preparation processes, and high production costs, which seriously restrict the development of nanofiltration membranes.

This Special Issue will include advanced NF membranes and membrane processes for the high-efficiency separation of monovalent and divalent ions, drug purification and separation, solvent recovery, and wastewater recycling as well as zero discharge technologies.

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.
