Biocompatible membranes can be highly complex structures: aside from their functional and mechanical properties, their biological compatibility must be assured in order to successfully fulfill their intended use. Whether for biomedical or environmental applications, membranes are dynamic structures that are fundamental to innumerous vital processes.
This Special Issue “Biocompatible Membranes” aims to cover the latest developments and innovations regarding the synthesis, functionalization, characterization and application of biocompatible membranes in distinct areas such as biomedical and environmental fields. It represents a good opportunity for researchers to present their latest work addressing fundamental aspects and also applied research within this field. This issue will also highlight new challenges to achieving more efficient membranes in increasingly demanding and specific applications.
Full articles, short communications or review articles 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 1800 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.
