Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to invite you to submit your manuscript to the Special Issue "Mathematical and Computational Modelling in Membrane Separations: From Preparation to Processes".

In the portfolio of technologies available for green processes and net-zero solutions, membrane separations offer a sustainable alternative to energy-intensive processes. Detailed knowledge of the performance of membrane materials over wide operating ranges is a necessary prerequisite for the design of efficient membrane processes. Mathematical and computational analysis can greatly support membrane material and process design, and can help to compact the lab-to-market cycle of innovative solutions.

This Special Issue is dedicated to recent advances in all aspects of modelling in membrane science and engineering, from the rationalisation of manufacturing protocols to tailor end-use performance, to the development of transport models, and to membrane process control and optimisation. Macroscopic, molecular, and data-driven approaches are of interest, as well as multi-scale strategies and novel hybrid methods combining physics-based and data-driven approaches.

We welcome both original research and review/perspective articles that offer valuable insights into the future trajectory of the field and propose directions for its advancement. Contributions focusing on the integration of sustainability principles within computational analysis and their implications for the development and application of membranes are highly encouraged.

We look forward to receiving your manuscripts.

Dr. Eleonora Ricci
Guest Editor

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Membranes is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
