Multifunctional Nanomaterial-Enabled Membranes for Water Treatment

Volodymyr V. Tarabara,    Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan, USA

The recent progress in the synthesis and characterization of nanomaterials has provided new methods and building blocks for the design of separation membranes. Of especial interest are functional nanoparticles that can be used to develop membranes with additional nanoparticle-based functionalities. In this chapter, recent research on the development of nanostructured multifunctional membranes is overviewed first. Two specific examples, (i) a porous polymer-metal nanocomposite membrane with biocidal properties, and (ii) a ceramic membrane ...
