646 Membrane Surface Modification

Thursday, November 1, 2012: 8:30 AM
401 (Convention Center )
Membrane surface properties are critically affect membrane performance. Often membrane fouling or surface contamination, leads to compromised performance. Surface modification offers a way to optimize membrane surface properties without compromising the desirable bulk membrane properties. In this session contributions are sought that focus on surface modification of membrane in order to enhance performance, add novel responsive properties or prevent fouling.
