Janus membranes are an emerging class of materials having opposing properties at an interface. This structure results in selective and often novel transport characteristics. In this Minireview, a definition of the Janus membrane, beyond merely asymmetric materials, is introduced and common fabrication strategies are outlined. Also presented are current and potential applications in directional transport, switchable permeation, and performance optimization with detailed mechanisms.
