Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Mixed ionic–electronic conducting (MIEC) membranes have attracted considerable attention from both academia and industry due to their broad range of potential for energy- and environmental-related applications. MIEC membranes have been considered as a prominent next-generation technology for energy conversion and storage and demonstrate an important role in the ongoing energy transition. There is no doubt that MIEC membranes will play a vital role in various energy conversion and storage applications.

This Special Issue of the journal Membranes titled “Sustainable Mixed Ionic–Electronic Conducting Membranes for Environmental and Energy Applications” seeks contributions to assess state-of-the-art technologies, the latest developments and future challenges and opportunities of MIEC membranes. Topics include, but are not limited to, membranes for H2 and O2 production, membranes for CO2 conversion, membranes for CO2 separation, membrane reactors for the production of chemicals, membranes for O2 and H2 separation, cathode development for solid oxide fuel cells, protonic ceramic fuel cells, solar-driven evaporation processes, electrolyzer cells for power-to-X technologies, modeling for oxygen and hydrogen transport, new material development, new fabrication techniques, industrial exploitation and new processes using MIEC membranes. Both original articles, perspectives and reviews are welcome.

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

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 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.
