Special issue on advanced membranes with bio-inspired properties and functions

Published 20 June, 2022

Introduction:

In nature, cell membranes possessing stimuli-responsive channels demonstrate self-regulatable penetrative and selective performances in response to environmental signals. This results in ultrahigh selectivity and ultrafast transport of water and ions. Inspired by the function of cell membranes, advanced membranes with intrinsic intelligence show great potential for applications in global sustainable development, including resource, environment, energy and health.

This special issue will publish papers on state-of-the-art membrane materials, structures and processes that harness the behaviours of biological membranes for modern technology.

Topics covered:

These include, but are not limited to:

  • Smart membranes
  • Responsive membranes
  • Sensitive membranes
  • Bio-inspired membranes
  • Membranes with bio-inspired and responsive water channels
  • Membranes with bio-inspired and responsive ion channels
  • Membranes with bio-inspired and responsive materials
  • Membranes with bio-inspired and responsive structures (including those with metal-organic frameworks, covalent organic frameworks, 2D materialsand mixed matrix materials)
  • Membranes with bio-inspired and responsive functions
  • Membranes with bio-inspired and responsive processes
  • Membranes with bio-inspired and responsive properties
