Special Issue "Nanomaterials for Membranes, Membrane Reactors and Catalyst Systems"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 July 2021.
Interests: membrane materials, membranes and membrane processes; membrane reactors; clean and cleaning technologies; selective separation and sensing
The impact of nanomaterials upon membrane science and technology continues to give an excellent argument to amplify the theoretical and experimental studies. Membranes and membrane processes represent the core high-technology domain in which nanomaterials have been capitalized for their entire physical, chemical, and technical-economic potential. Increasingly sophisticated membrane requirements such as: chemical and photochemical oxidation resistance; high selectivity; sensitivity to physical, chemical, and biological parameters; high flow at low pressures; and longer lifetime have led to the transition from classical material membranes to composite or liquid membranes based on reactive and/or functional nanomaterials.
This Special Issue aims to cover a broad range of subjects, from nanomaterials synthesis to the design and characterization of membranes, membrane processes, and technologies with nanomaterial integration.
We welcome the submission of full papers, communications, and reviews. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Membrane nanomaterials (nanoparticles, nanocarriers, functional and/or reactive nanospecies, etc,);
- Membrane processes based on nanomaterials;
- Membrane reactors and catalyst systems;
- Selective separation and sensing;
- Nanomaterial-based cleaning technologies;
- Nanomaterial membrane applications.

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. Nanomaterials 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 2200 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.
