This Special Issue, entitled “Advanced Nanofiltration Membranes”, is motivated by the growing interest in developing novel and advanced nanofiltration (NF) membranes by various research groups. This includes hollow fiber NF membranes, flat-sheet NF membranes, polymeric NF membranes, ceramic NF membranes, solvent-resistant NF membranes, aquaporin-based NF membranes, layer-by-layer polyelectrolyte NF membranes, NF membrane fabrication (e.g., phase inversion, electrospinning, chemical treatment, surface coating, interfacial polymerization, UV grafting/photografting, electron beam irradiation, plasma treatment, layer-by-layer, incorporation of single/multiple types of nanoparticles, addition of carbon-based nanomaterials, insertion of metal-organic frameworks, etc.), NF membrane characterization (e.g., chemical, structural, morphological, electrical, compositional, mechanical and topographical properties, as well as membrane transport, scaling and fouling mechanisms, etc.), and applications of NF membranes in different fields (e.g., separation and purification, drinking water production, wastewater treatment, desalination and solute concentration of different types of aqueous and organic solutions, solvent recovery, pharmaceutical and biotechnological applications, food industry applications, etc.). Overall, this Special Issue is orientated to all the above-cited research topics in advanced NF membranes.
Considering your outstanding contribution in this interesting research filed, I would like to cordially invite you to submit a paper to this Special Issue. The manuscript should be submitted online before 31 May 2018.

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.
