Special Issue "Advanced Polymer for Membrane Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 5 November 2023 | Viewed by 4032
Interests: membrane science and technology; biomass derived polymer; biomass valorization; chiral resolution
Polymer material is one of the key factors determining the performance of a polymeric membrane. The membrane structures and properties are greatly influenced by the physiochemical properties and unique macromolecular architecture of the polymer. This Special Issue is devoted to the research fields in polymer science and technology for the advancement of polymeric membranes. The membranes fabricated via the utilization of new polymer materials, chemical modification of existing polymer, as well as hybrid additives that enhances the polymer properties, are evaluated for energy, environmental, biomedical, and chemical engineering applications.
It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a communication, full paper, or review to this Special Issue. Examples of topics within the Special Issue’s scope include, but are not limited to:
- Synthesis, processing, or modification of polymers for membrane applications;
- Biomass derived polymers and their application in membranes;
- Polymeric membrane for energy, environment, or biomedical applications;
- Environment impact analysis of new polymeric membrane fabrication.

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.
