Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

You are warmly invited to submit your original work or a review article to this Special Issue of Membranes entitled “Ceramic Membranes for Fuel Cell Applications and Hydrogen Production”.

Over the last few decades, researchers have investigated two types of fuel cells based on ceramic membranes: Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs) and Protonic Ceramic Fuel Cells (PCFCs). The progress has led to a decrease in the operating temperature, from 1000 to below 700 °C, a significant improvement in performance, as well as a noteworthy increase in lifetime. Ceramic-based membranes have also been developed for hydrogen production using electrolysis or gas separation. With recent discoveries and technological advances, ceramic membranes represent an alternative path for the generation of renewable energy.

The aim of this Special Issue is to provide an overview of the latest results obtained in the field and to highlight possible research directions to further advance the development of these technologies.

We are looking forward to receiving your work for this Special Issue

Prof. Sandrine Ricote
Guest Editor

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 1000 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.
