Special Issue "Modelling and Experiment of Anion-Exchange Membranes"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2020).
Interests: ion-exchange membranes; structure-property relationships; transport phenomena; experiment; modelling
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Anion-exchange membranes (AEMs) are the weak link in the electromembrane technologies. They cause more troubles than cation-exchange membranes. Generally, the lifetime of AEMs is shorter, they are less selective and more prone to fouling; the unwanted water splitting reaction is more intensive. The main goal of the Special Issue is to contribute to the advancement of AEMs’ knowledge. Understanding of the behavior of AEMs using experimental and theoretical (modelling, simulation) studies; methods of preparation of new membranes and modification of commercial ones are within the scope of the Special issue. Studies on structure-property relationships; dependence of the AEM performance on the preparation/modification method; mechanisms of ion and molecules transport in and through the AEMs; membrane fouling and ways of fighting it; use of AEMs in separation, extraction and removal of species; other aspects of AEMs preparation, characterization and application are of great interest. Authors are invited to submit their latest results, both original papers and reviews; in particular, contributions to assess the state-of-the-art and future developments are welcome.

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 papers will be 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 1400 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.
