Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

"Due to the COVID-19 situation the MEMPEP conference is moved to the 2021."

This Special Issue includes selected papers presented at the XIII Scientific Conference “Membranes and Membrane Processes in Environmental Protection” (MEMPEP 2021), to be held from 9 June to 12 June, 2012, in Zakopane, Poland.

Membrane techniques have found a wide range of applications in environmental protection. Thus, the review and coordination current researches are aimed and justified. The active participation of industrial partners who apply membrane processes into the industrial practice is also highly desired. It has all been revealed by a series of membrane conferences regularly organized since 1995.

The aim of the conference is to sum up the recent progress in the application of membrane processes, mainly in environmental protection but also in other branches of industry.

The main topics discussed during conference’s sessions are as follows:

  • The production and characteristics of membranes due to their further application in environmental protection;
  • The modelling of membrane processes and other engineering concepts;
  • The desalination of water and wastewater with the use of membrane techniques;
  • Membranes in water and wastewater treatment technology;
  • Hybrid membrane processes;
  • Pervaporation, membrane distillation, and gas separation;
  • Fuel cells;
  • The application of membranes in biotechnology;
  • Membranes in environmental monitoring;
  • Membrane reactors;
  • Membrane removal of micropollutants from various environmental species.

Note: Submissions from the attendees will enjoy a 20% discount on the article processing charge (APC)!

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.

N,N’-Bis(salicylidene)ethylenediamine (Salen) as an Active Compound for the Recovery of Ni(II), Cu(II), and Zn(II) Ions from Aqueous Solutions

Abstract
In this paper, three main methods of metal ion separation, i.e., liquid–liquid extraction, transport across polymer inclusion membranes (PIMs), and sorption/desorption, are described. In all of them, N,N’-bis(salicylidene)ethylenediamine (salen) was used as an active compound, i.e., as an extractant or [...] Read more.
In this paper, three main methods of metal ion separation, i.e., liquid–liquid extraction, transport across polymer inclusion membranes (PIMs), and sorption/desorption, are described. In all of them, N,N’-bis(salicylidene)ethylenediamine (salen) was used as an active compound, i.e., as an extractant or as a carrier for the recovery of Ni(II), Cu(II), or Zn(II) ions from aqueous solutions. In each case, the recovery was performed on a model solution, which contained only a single metal ion. The obtained results were compared with the author’s previous results for the separation of metal ions using β-diketones, since both β-diketones and salen form the so-called Werner-type complexes. Electrospray ionization high-resolution mass spectrometry (ESI-HRMS) was also applied to confirm the ability of the carrier to form complexes with metal ions in a solution. Moreover, spectrophotometry was used to determine the stability constant of the obtained complexes. Full article
