Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue is in honor of Professor Anthony (Tony) Fane, who does not need any introduction within the membrane community. His more than 500 peer-reviewed journal papers have garnered more than 50,000 citations and a h-index of 122, a testament to his dedication to the field of membrane science and technology through the decades. He has also pioneered two highly successful, world-renowned membrane research centers, namely, the UNESCO Centre for Membrane Science and Technology in Australia and the Singapore Membrane Technology Center.

Many of us have been very fortunate to collaborate with, receive mentorship from and befriend Professor Fane, witnessing his insatiable passion for membrane research. Despite his extraordinary achievements and international recognition, he is remarkably unassuming, humble and down-to-earth.

In honor and recognition of Prof. Anthony (Tony) Fane’s life-long scientific and educational contributions to the field of membranes, this Special Issue of Membranes welcomes the submission of original research manuscripts or reviews on all aspects of membranes. The deadline for submission is 15 December 2021. Manuscripts will be published online on an ongoing basis after due processing.
