The course aims at connecting the materials and fabrication methods to the separation performance for membranes. Students will know the different methods for membrane fabrication (phase inversion, localized reactions, sintering) and connect this to appropriate characterization methods (pore size, porosity, swelling/solubility, etc). Both the materials properties and their obtained structure/morphology can be related to their selective transport characteristics. Students will understand the basics of transport theory to describe the functioning of the membranes discussed.
The different methods and materials for membrane fabrication will be discussed, including phase inversion, interfacial polymerization (or localized reactions), sintering, crosslinking and coatings. These methods lead to porous, dense, or ion selective membranes. Characterization techniques are presented, crucial to define the separation properties of membranes. The materials properties, combined with the fabrication method, results in a selective transport medium, for which the transport theory is basically explained.
