Membrane separation is one of the most critical and challenging steps for industrial processes, and zeolite and zeolitic metal–organic framework (MOF) membranes are potential candidates for this application. This Special Issue on “Zeolitic Membranes: Advances and Applications” focuses on the recent theoretical and experimental advances in materials chemistry, membrane synthesis, processing, characterization, simulation and improving performance, including the issues faced in the design and growth of membranes for practical applications.
The topics of interests include, but are not limited to, the following: separation of hydrocarbons from crude oil; H2 purification and recycling; CO2 removal from dilute emissions; O2 and N2 enrichment; separation of alkenes from alkanes; separation of benzene derivatives from each other; dehydration system; removal of trace contaminants from water; removal of VOCs from aqueous or gas streams; chiral resolution, etc.
Authors are, therefore, cordially invited to submit their exciting works and research findings in the form of original research papers, technical communications and review articles for publication in the journal Membranes.

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.
