The vast progress in the development of 2D materials did not leave research on membranes untouched. Due to their ultimate thinness, 2D materials are a highly promising candidate for new membrane technologies. Here, the family of 2D materials offers a broad range to fabricate membranes with the most diverse properties and possible applications. Graphene and graphene oxide membranes have a sharp cut-off for selectivity in the sub-nm range, making them promising candidates for water desalination. Membranes made of the transition metal dichalcogenide exhibit non-swelling behaviour and their catalytic activity can be harvested in manifold ways. The young group of 2D materials including zeolite, metal–organic framework, or MXenes are promising candidates for gas separation. Moreover, the 2D nature of all these materials can lead to new insights into molecular transports in highly confined environments, accelerating the progress in nanofluid research.
The Special Issue 2D Materials based Membranes calls for papers on membrane fabrication procedures, membranes characteristics, and their application in separation and purification.

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.
