The effect of mass transfer resistance and nonuniform initial solvent concentration on permeation through polymer membranes
A numerical simulation model has been developed which enables one to examine the effects of surface mass transfer resistance on the evaluation of permeation (P*), diffusion (D), and solubility (S) coefficients from ...
A facile approach for preparation of positively charged nanofiltration membranes by in-situ crosslinking between polyamide-imide and polyethylenimine
Polyamide-imides (PAI) are attractive materials for membrane formation due to their high chemical and thermal stability. In this study, we report a facile approach for preparing positively charged nanofiltration (NF) ...
Surface modification of polysulfone based hemodialysis membranes with layer by layer self assembly of polyethyleneimine/alginate-heparin: A simple polyelectrolyte blend approach for heparin immobilization
This study intends to improve blood compatibility of polysulfone (PSF) membranes by generating a nonthrombogenic surface through heparin immobilization. To achieve this task, the support membrane prepared from a blend of ...
Novel low-fouling membrane bioreactor (MBR) for industrial wastewater treatment
A novel antifouling coating of ultrafiltration (UF) commercial membranes, based on a polymerisable bicontinuous microemulsion (PBM) technique, was developed and tested for the first time in a membrane bioreactor (MBR) using ...
A step forward to a more efficient wastewater treatment by membrane surface modification via polymerizable bicontinuous microemulsion
An innovative hydrophilic and anti-fouling coating material for application in membrane technology for wastewater treatment has been developed by polymerization of a polymerizable bicontinuous microemulsion (PBM) and used ...
