625 Membrane Surface Engineering I

Thursday, November 7, 2013: 8:30 AM
Union Square 6 (Hilton)
Description:
This session focuses on the modification of membrane surfaces or the surface engineering of novel membranes to improve their performance insofar as their permselectivity, mitigation of fouling, ability to withstand hostile environments, or their robustness. Papers are encouraged that explore surface modification via thermal or chemical treatment, grafting, the use of polymer brushes, chemical or physical vapor deposition, or the introduction of micro- or nanoparticles. Papers are also of interest that draw from biomimetics to modify membrane surfaces.
