About the Journal

Membrane is a selective barrier and its selectivity can be used for filtration and other processes. Membrane technology is a generic term and has a vast area of scientific research which covers all the engineering approaches for the transport of substances between two fractions with the help of permeable membranes.

The journal includes a wide range of fields in its discipline to create a platform for the authors to make their contribution towards the journal and the editorial office promises a peer review process for the submitted manuscripts for the quality of publishing.

The journal is using Editorial Manager System for quality in review process. Editorial Manager is an online manuscript submission, review and tracking systems. Review processing is performed by the editorial board members of Journal of Membrane Science & Technology or outside experts; at least two independent reviewers approval followed by editor approval is required for acceptance of any citable manuscript. Authors may submit manuscripts and track their progress through the system, hopefully to publication. Reviewers can download manuscripts and submit their opinions to the editor. Editors can manage the whole submission/review/revise/publish process.

Reverse Osmosis

Reverse osmosis (RO) is a water filteration innovation that uses a semipermeable film to expel larger particles from drinking water. In opposite osmosis, a connected weight is utilized to overcome osmotic weight, a colligative property, that is driven by concoction potential, a thermodynamic parameter.M

Reverse Osmosis filter

Reverse Osmosis is a mechanism where dissolved inorganic solids (such as salts) are removed from  water solution. This is achieved by individual household water pressure forcely passing from the tap water through a semipermeable layer. The layer (its thickness is as cellophane) permits  exceptionally water to pass through, leaving the impurities or contaminates.  later on these impurities and contaminates are flushed down the drain.

Ion Exchange

An exchange of ions between two electrolytes or solution of an electrolyte and a complex is known as Ion exchange. In many cases the word is used to indicate the processes of purification, separation, and decontamination of aqueous and other ion-containing solutions with solid polymeric or mineralic 'ion exchangers'.

A solution that has particles ranging from 1 and 1000 nanometers in diameter, but still able to remain evenly distributed throughout the solution is called colloidal solution. These are also known as colloidal dispersions because the substances remain dispersed and do not settle to the bottom of the container.

Surface Science

It is the study of physical and chemical phenomena that occur at the interface of two phases, including solid–liquid interfaces, solid–gas interfaces, solid–vacuum interfaces, and liquid–gas interfaces. It also includes the fields of surface chemistry and surface physics.

Membrane Filtration

The membrane separation phenomenon is based on the presence of semi permeable membranes. The principle is easy: the layer acts as a very specific filter that will let water flow through, while it holds suspended solids and other substances.

Membrane Bioreactor

Membrane bioreactor (MBR) is the combination of a membrane process like microfiltration or ultrafiltration with a suspended growth bioreactor, and is now globaly utilized for municipal and industrial wastewater treatment  with plant sizes up to 80,000 population equivalent (i.e. 48 million liters per day).

Ultrafiltration is one of the membrane filtration variety in which forces like pressure or concentration gradients leads to the segregation through a semipermeable membrane. Suspended solids and solutes of high molecular weight are left over in the so-called retentate, while water and low molecular weight solutes pass through the layer in the permeate. This segregation technique is used in industry and research for purifying and concentrating macromolecular (103 - 106 Da) solutions, especially protein solutions. Ultrafiltration is not fundamentally vary from microfiltration. Both of these separate based on size exclusion or particle capture. It is basically different from membrane gas separation, which separate depending on various amounts of absorption and different rates of diffusion. Ultrafiltration membranes are defined by the molecular weight cut-off (MWCO) of the membrane used. Ultrafiltration is applied in cross-flow or dead-end mode.

Desalination is the process of removing dissolved salts from water, thus producing fresh water from seawater or brackish water. Desalting technologies can be used for many applications. The most prevalent use is to produce potable water from saline water for domestic or municipal purposes, but use of desalination and desalination technologies for industrial applications is growing, especially in the oil & gas industry.

Membrane Distillation

Membrane Distillation (MD) is a thermally-driven separation process, in which only vapour molecules transfer through a microporous hydrophobic membrane. The driving force in the MD process is the vapour pressure difference induced by the temperature difference across the hydrophobic membrane.

Membrane Permeability

Membrane permeability is essentially the ability of certain substances to pass in and out of an organic or semi-organic barrier. It is most commonly talked about in terms of biology, where the membrane is a cell wall and the substances passing in and out are elements of chemical production, cell food, and waste products. The concept is broader than this, though, and does have some applications in industry, scientific experimentation, and manufacturing.

Semipermeable layer

A semipermeable layer, also defined as a selectively permeable layer, a partially permeable layer or a differentially permeable layer, is a type of biological membrane that will allow certain molecules or ions to pass through it by diffusion and periodically specialized "facilitated diffusion," along with other.

Membrane Emulsification

Membrane emulsification is a relatively novel innovation for producing all different types of single and multiple emulsions for DDS (drug delivery systems), solid micro carriers for  encapsulation of drug or nutrient, solder particles for surface-mount technology, mono dispersed polymer microspheres (for analytical column packing, enzyme carriers, liquid crystal display spacers, toner core particles).Membrane emulsification was introduced by Nakashima and Shimizu in the late 1980s in Japan.

Osmotic Distillation

It is a separation process in which a liquid mixture containing a volatile component is contacted with a microporous, non-liquid-wettable membrane whose opposite surface is exposed to a second liquid phase capable of absorbing that component — is nearing commercialization for the concentration of beverages and other liquid foodstuffs, and is under evaluation for the concentration of aqueous solutions of thermally labile pharmaceutical products and biologicals.

*Unofficial 2014 Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2012 and 2013 with the number of times they are cited in 2014 based on Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database. If ‘X’ is the total number of articles published in 2012 and 2013, and ‘Y’ is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2014 then, impact factor = Y/X
