Special Issue "Novel Membrane Materials"
A special issue of Membranes (ISSN 2077-0375).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2018)
In recent years, we have been witnessing an exciting wave of developments in new membrane materials and structures. Membranes made of novel microporous materials (metal organic frameworks, covalent organic frameworks, polymers of intrinsic microporosity, zeolites, etc.) show unprecedented separation performance. Carbon-based materials (e.g., carbon nanotubes, graphene, and graphene oxide) hold great promise in delivering excellent combination of permeability, selectivity, and antifouling performance. While the revolution of aquaporin-based biomimetic membranes is still ongoing, a new string of developments in synthetic channels have emerged.
This Special Issue is dedicated to provide a comprehensive coverage on the recent progresses in “Novel Membrane Materials” and their use in all types of membranes and membrane processes. It offers a perfect site to report the synthesis and characterization of novel materials, the related membrane fabrication methods, and their applications to gas separation, water treatment, desalination, drug delivery, resource recovery, energy production, batteries, etc. Both original papers and critical reviews are welcome.

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.
