It is a pleasure for us to coordinate the Special Issue “Polymers for Membrane Separation Process” of Polymers (MDPI). This Special Issue is motivated by the ubiquitous presence of polymers in membrane synthesis and fabrication and the extensive use of polymer membranes in separation processes. The objective of this Special Issue is to cover traditional polymers for membranes fabrication (PVDF, Polysulfone, PTFE, Polyethylene, etc.) and more specific and special polymers such as biodegradable, biobased polymers used in membranes for separation processes (chitosan, etc.), the role of fabrication parameters in the performance of polymeric membranes in separation processes as for instance the use of new, biodegradable, neoteric and/or greener solvents and non-solvents used during membranes fabrication; the use of polymers in composite membranes for separation processes will also be addressed as well as polymers used for the fabrication of gas separation membranes. As the scope of this Issue is focused on the polymers all the membrane geometries will be taken into consideration.

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.
