Polymeric Membrane Science and Technology

Call for Papers

Membrane science and technology are genetically heterogeneous and include a broad spectrum of membrane processes and phenomena. Recent advances in polymer and materials chemistry have introduced new methodology to membrane science. Knowledge and understanding of these conditions have led to the development of membrane science and technology.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that will advance the science and technology of membrane processes and phenomena. The primary emphasis is on preparation, functionalization or surface modification, and performance enhancing of polymeric membranes. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Membrane surface modification and its relation to membrane characterizations
  • Membrane formation and structure on transport properties
  • Theoretical analyses of membrane transport phenomena
  • Experimental results on membrane permeation and selectivity
  • Membrane fouling and its effect on membrane performance
  • Membrane adsorber/membrane chromatography
  • Membrane modules and their impact on device performance
  • Membrane processes/applications with a focus on the role of the membrane

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal's Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/ijps/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/author/submit/journals/ijps/memb/ according to the following timetable:
