Membranes: Special Focus Session

Synthetic membranes are key components for a wide range of commercially important processes and devices - from water purification plants to chemical and biomaterials manufacturing, fuel cells and batteries. Membranes provide a significant materials design challenge and there is a clear need for innovation in this area to enable new products and processes. You are invited to submit an abstract describing your work on membranes and to participate in this exciting cross-disciplinary event.
