Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue focuses on the innovative use of porous materials in membrane technologies for liquid separation processes. We aim to highlight advancements in metal–organic frameworks (MOFs), covalent organic frameworks (COFs), molecular organic cages (MOCs), and porous organic cages (POCs) and their integration into mixed-matrix membranes (MMMs), thin-film composites (TFCs) membranes, 2D lamellar membranes, and polycrystalline membranes. The Special Issue will cover various applications, including organic solvent nanofiltration (OSN), desalination, chiral separation, pervaporation, and liquid hydrocarbon separation. By showcasing cutting-edge research, the Special Issue aims to foster interdisciplinary collaboration and address current challenges in the field. We invite original research articles, comprehensive reviews, and perspectives that provide significant insights into the synthesis, characterization, and practical applications of these advanced membrane technologies. Through rigorous peer review, we aim to ensure high scientific quality and relevance, contributing to the advancement of membrane technologies for critical liquid separation applications. This Special Issue aspires to be a valuable resource for researchers and industry professionals, driving further innovation and practical solutions in this dynamic area.

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. 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.
