A finely porous cellulose nitrate/cellulose acetate porous support membrane which is used in the preparation of a membrane for the separation of gases was prepared from a casting solution containing wt. % of cellulose nitrate, wt. % of cellulose acetate, wt. % of acetone, wt. % of absolute alcohol, wt. % butanol, wt. The cellulose acetate membrane system can process mixtures containing a wide range of concentrations of hydrogen, carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulfide, water vapor, hydrocarbons, and oxygen. Minor amounts of aromatic hydrocarbons, olefins, and heavy hydrocarbons do not appear to affect the membrane performance; spiral-wound elements have already. Among the low-flux cellulose membranes, cellulose acetate produced the highest ibuprofen flux. It was found that the cellulose acetate used in this study was not compatible with the receptor fluid. According to the manufacturer, the membrane was only stable in pH 3–8 while the receptor fluid ( M sodium hydroxide) had a pH of The present invention discloses high performance cross-linked polyimide asymmetric flat sheet membranes and a process of using such membranes. The cross-linked polyimide asymmetric flat sheet membranes have shown CO2 permeance higher than 80 GPU and CO2/CH4 selectivity higher than 20 at 50° C. under kPa of a feed gas with 10% CO2 and 90% CH4 for CO2/CH4 separation.

Wound healing requires careful, directed, and effective therapies to prevent infections and accelerate tissue regeneration. In light of these demands, active biomolecules with antibacterial properties and/or healing capacities have been functionalized onto nanostructured polymeric dressings and their synergistic effect examined. In this work, various antibiotics, nanoparticles, and natural. Membrane systems are finding increasing application worldwide in the purification of potable and industrial water, and their design and use is set to grow considerably in years to comprehensive book is written in a practical style with emphasis on process description, key unit operations, plant equipment description, equipment installation, safety and maintenance, process .   Fouling is a phenomenon that occurs in all membrane processes. It is a complex problem, which limits the full operation of this technology. Fouling in pressure-driven membranes (PDMs) has been studied extensively, and the occurrence is well understood in that methods of mitigation have been proposed; however, limitations still occur for their full implementation.

An asymmetric integrally-skinned flat sheet membrane comprising a miscible blend of an aromatic polyethersulfone (PES) polymer and an aromatic polyimide polymer is used for gas separations such as hydrogen purification, separation of hydrogen and methane and to separate other gases and liquids. UV radiation may be applied to the surface of the membrane for improved properties.   The first membrane systems (anisotropic cellulose acetate) to separate carbon dioxide from natural gas were introduced in the mid s by Cynara (now part of Natco), Grace Membrane Systems Separex (now part of UOP), and GMS (now part of Kvaerner). 25 In the last decade, cellulose acetate has begun to be challenged by newer membranes, such as.   NF and RO membranes are generally manufactured from cellulose acetate or ployamide materials, and their various advantages and disadvantages. Cellulose membranes are susceptible to biodegradation and must be operated within a narrow, pH range of 4 to 8 but they do have some resistance to continuous low-level oxidants.

It was found that dry asymmetric membranes are obtained with good permeabil- ities and good selectivities in many gas separations (e.g., H21CH4, C02/CH4, H,0/CH4) when the wet membranes are either freeze dried’ or.

The demand for higher productivity in industrial applications drove the development of asymmetric membranes (Loeb & Sourirajan, ), composite membranes (Henis & Tripodi, ) with a thin selective skin on a relatively open porous support, instead of thicker, flat, dense membranes.

The selective layer of a membrane should be as thin as. An exhaustive treatment of the past decade of intense activity in the membrane-based gas separation field would require an entire book and provide more detail than necessary to capture the essence of this dynamic field.
