Special Issue "Physico-Chemical Methods for Modification of Polymeric Gas Separating Membranes"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (10 September 2023) | Viewed by 350
The majority of data on gas separation using polymeric membranes relate to the homopolymers. Variation of chemical structure inside the repeating unit is the most popular instrument currently used to obtain polymeric gas separating membranes with better characteristics. This approach meets definite obvious limitations because some characteristics of any polymer contradict each other, such as gas permeability, selectivity of permeability, and so on. In this connection, introducing into polymer membrane an additional new variable using its physico-chemical modification may solve this problem. A list of appropriate modification methods used for this goal includes volume modification (cross-linking, the introduction of filler, or another functional additive), as well as the surface modification of membrane (grafting, fluorination, cold plasma treatment). I think such a topic is specific and wide enough simultaneously. I hope it will be of interest to many specialists working in this area.

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.
