Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Membrane-based separation and purification technologies are energy efficient and environment friendly as compared to conventional sorption and distillation processes. In particular, polymeric membranes have dominated membrane industries for a wide range of applications such as gas separation, saline desalination, and wastewater treatment. This is mainly due to the excellent processability of polymers, which can be economically shaped into various structures by non-solvent-induced phase inversion (NIP) and thermal-induced phase inversion (TIP). Nevertheless, driven by high demand, polymeric membranes with better performances are highly desired and pursued in both academia and industry. Apart from the discovery and synthesis of new membrane polymers, advanced polymer-based composite membranes provide a new and wide window for exploring and developing high-performance membranes. Polymeric composite membranes can be in various configurations, such as thin-film composites (TFCs), nanocomposites, mixed matrixes, etc.

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.
