Membrane technology advancement has been realised by new materials and novel preparation processes. Recently, there has been a number of works showing performance improvements by mixed matrix membranes (MMM). These membranes can be characterised by mixing organic and inorganic phases, of by combining different inorganic phase materials. Examples include MMM containing silica/carbon, polymer/MOF, ceramics/stainless steel among many other combinations. There are also a number of novel assembly processes based on freeze casting and vacuum impregnation of pores among other processes. These advancements in membrane technology can deliver higher fluxes and separation factors, thus affecting transport property through dense and porous media.
This special issue on “Membranes, Materials, Performance and Processes” seeks high quality works focusing on the latest novel advances membrane technology for both gas and liquid separation. Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Porous materials (ceramic, silica, carbon and/or composites) and performance application;
- MMM membrane preparation processes and transport properties;
- Novel membrane assembly by vacuum-assisted and/or freeze-cast processes, materials and transport properties;
- Membrane process industrial integration, application and modelling.

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 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. Processes 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 2000 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.
