Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the landscape of modern materials science, nanocomposite membranes emerge as a beacon of innovation, harnessing the synergistic potential of nanotechnology and membrane technology. These membranes, composed of a blend of nanomaterials and polymers, hold immense promise in revolutionizing various applications due to their unique structural characteristics and tailored functionalities. By integrating nanoparticles with conventional membrane matrices, nanocomposite membranes exhibit superior properties such as enhanced mechanical strength, tunable surface properties, and precise control over pore size and distribution. The pursuit of nanocomposite membrane research is driven by the urgent need for sustainable solutions to pressing global challenges, including clean water scarcity, environmental pollution, and energy sustainability.

The purpose of this Special Issue, “Prospects for Nanocomposite Membrane Applications”, is to collect recent advancements and applications of nanocomposite membranes. The types of articles in this collection include reviews and original research papers, covering a variety of nanocomposite membrane applications including water purification and desalination, organic solvent purification, gas separation, energy conversion and storage, and environmental remediation.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2700 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.
