Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Water scarcity and increasingly serious water pollution are making clean water supplies more challenging. During the past several decades, membrane technology has become a promising and important separation technology in water/wastewater treatment, due to its low energy use, excellent selectivity of the specific compounds, and high flexibility. In membrane separation processes, the design and preparation of membranes are critical because they determine the intrinsic properties of resultant membranes. This Special Issue aims to emphasize the state-of-the-art findings and achievements concerning the fabrication of polymeric membranes for water or wastewater treatment and reuse. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Development of novel polymer membranes;
  • Regulation of the membrane structure and its mechanism;
  • Membrane modification;
  • The novel strategy of membrane fouling mitigation;
  • Membrane distillation;
  • Novel preparation of polyamide composite membrane
  • Regulation of interfacial polymerization;
  • High-performance nanofiltration membrane;
  • Formation mechanism of polyamide membrane;
  • Nanostructured polyamide membrane.

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.
