We cordially invite you to submit your original work or review article to this Special Issue of “Polymeric Membranes for Gas Separation”. With inherently high energy-efficiency, membrane-based chemical separation processes have become increasingly important technology for industrial gas separations, and attracted significant interest for emerging societally important applications, such as CO2 capture, natural gas processing, and olefin/paraffin separations. Polymers are the working horse for industrial membranes due to their good processibility, while polymers-based mixed matrix materials (comprising metal organic frameworks, 2-D materials, carbon molecular sieves and ionic liquids) are under extensive exploration to achieve superior separation properties.
This issue is dedicated to recent advances in novel materials and processes for membrane gas separation. The topics of interests include, but not limited to, novel membrane materials (polymers and mixed matrix materials), emerging processes or hybrid processes based on membranes, CO2 capture, novel gas separation applications, techno-economic analysis, computational simulation of advanced membrane materials, configuration and processes, preparation and characterization of thin film composite membranes or hollow fiber membranes, membrane aging, etc.
We are looking forward to receiving your outstanding 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 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.
