Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Membrane-based separation is one of the most widely accepted technologies used in day-to-day activities, from simple household water filtration units to complex industrial processes in the petrochemical, dairy and pharmaceutical industries. The advancement in material science has provided us with tools to design and prepare membranes with dialled in properties. Nowadays, every aspect of membranes can be varied, from initial steps of fabrication all the way to the operational stage, making the overall process efficient and cost-effective. The choice of the appropriate material and the best fabrication technique in the light of the final application is crucial since it determines the membrane permeation and separation efficiencies. In this Special Issue, we are highlighting the current advancements in materials and methods in membrane fabrication and their structure:application correlation.

You may choose our Joint Special Issue in Molecules.

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. Solids is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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.
