Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We warmly invite you to submit your original work or review article to this Special Issue “Mixed-Matrix Membranes for Gas Separation”. Mixed-Matrix Membranes (MMMs) have been intensively studied during the last decades as an alternative to the polymeric membranes currently used industry. They are composite membranes composed of an inorganic, organic, or inorganic–organic hybrid material dispersed in a polymer matrix. MMMs aim to combine the better performance of the dispersed filler with the easier processability and low prices of the continuous polymeric phase.

This Special Issue is devoted to the latest advances in MMMs fabrication and characterization. Topics of interest include the study of the filler-polymer interface, from a synthesis, modeling and characterization point of view, the development of structure–performance relationships, unveiling for instance the role of filler particle size and morphology, and new approaches to alleviate membrane aging and for membrane fabrication. Special attention will be paid to the use of new fillers, such as porous organic frameworks and porous molecular compounds on MMMs preparation.

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 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.
