Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The aim of this Special Issue is to gather original research papers or review papers that describe the recent progress in the design, construction, and performance evaluation of functional membranes specifically designed for boost pervaporation and organic solvent nanofiltration processes. In recent years, the demand for precise and energy-efficient separation techniques has increased  across diverse fields, such as pharmaceuticals, chemicals, petrochemicals, environmental remediation, and beyond. Addressing these demands, Functional Separation Membranes have emerged as a game-changing technology. Specifically designed for pervaporation and organic solvent nanofiltration, these membranes offer a remarkable ability to selectively separate molecules based on size, polarity, and other molecular properties. From novel nanocomposite materials by tailoring surface functionalities, the goal is to enhance the selectivity, permeability, and durability of these membranes. The implications of these advancements are significant, promising substantial improvements in efficiency, reduced energy consumption, and cost-effectiveness in separation processes.

In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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).
