317 Responsive Membranes

Tuesday, November 10, 2015: 8:30 AM - 11:00 AM
155C (Salt Palace Convention Center)

This session focuses on membranes that change their properties in response to external stimuli, such as pH, ionic strength, temperature, light, magnetic or electric signals, or the presence of specific molecules. The response may be used to improve membrane performance or introduce additional functionality in various ways, including but not limited to tunable pore size, on/off modulation of permeability, fouling resistance, and self-cleaning capabilities. We welcome contributions that explore membranes that combine additional functionalities with separation and/or use biomimetic or bio-inspired approaches to imparting responsive behavior.
