4open - EDP Sciences’ multi- and inter-disciplinary Open Access Journal - continues to expand with the publication of its first article in chemistry. The article – “Characterization and modelling of the polarization phenomenon to describe salt rejection by nanofiltration” by Yassine Mdemagh et al. is free to access on the 4open website.

Presenting a new model to determine the thickness of the polarization’s boundary layer and the concentration of polarization, this article explores the application of dead-end filtration to the concept of nanofiltration used in water treatment.

4open is published by EDP Sciences under the auspices of the Société Française de Physique, and in partnership with Theodor-Billroth-Academy® & Int’l Consortium of Research Excellence of the TBA®.

The Journal encourages submissions in the fields of natural sciences, medicine and technology, including material sciences and engineering.
