Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Recently, new separation techniques based on the coupling of membrane and electrochemical processes are booming for a wide range of applications in gas separation, water treatment, seawater desalination, capacitive deionization, hydrometallurgy, chemical analysis, and other related purification systems. The coupling strategy usually affords a significant enhancement of electrochemical separation performances and/or membrane processes. Additionally, the integration of membrane and electrochemical technologies could be beneficial in reducing energy consumption, environmental hazards, and/or overall costs.

This Special Issue aims to present readers with the latest developments and opportunities for research on the coupling of electrochemical–membrane separation. This issue includes but is not limited to membrane-based/separated/assisted electrochemical reaction/detection/separation, membrane processes combined/coupled with electrochemical technologies, and the related methods/designs/modeling/applications. We welcome all interested authors to submit reviews, original research articles, and perspectives on the above topics.

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 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. Separations 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.
