Aims
Membranes for Gas Separation is a course on membranes with a strong focus on membrane materials and molecular interactions. In most membrane based Gas Separations, the gas molecules will need to absorb in the membrane material, to be able to diffuse to the other side. In the absorption process affinity between membrane material and the gas can play an essential role. For other membranes, membrane pore sizes are so small that we achieve Molecular Sieving. In this course we teach how membranes are prepared and optimized for gas separation applications, how gas is transported through a variety of membranes, and how membrane materials and membrane processes can be strongly linked. This is done by a combination of lecturing and practical work. This course has a significant overlap with Advanced Molecular Separations.
