Membrane Manufacture

Membrane Manufacture

Details

The main focus of the NPM-LAB is the manufacture of new membranes to be used in aqueous or organic solvent medium, using mainly materials synthesized in the group, in collaboration or a combination of commercial polymers.

Focus is the development of

(i) Isoporous, stimuli responsive membranes for ultra and nanofilltraion, based on block copolymers self-assembly and phase inversion

(ii) Membranes with high stability

(iii) Membranes from green solvents and polymers

(iv) Multilayered membranes (by dip coating and interfacial polymerization)

Membranes are manufactured in the lab as flat sheet, hollow fibers or porous capsules. For flat sheet and hollow fibers, facilities for lab scale and semi-technical are available in the group.
