Materials Having Improved Nonfouling Characteristics And Method Of Making Same
Speaker, Lois M.
MetadataShow full item record
A method of improving the separatory properties of membranes by the deposition of a fluorinated amphiphilic compound in an oriented Langmuir-Blodgett layer on the membranes surface so as to increase membrane selectivity and counteract membrane surface properties leading to fouling during liquid-liquid separations and enhance gas selectivities of membranes used for gas-gas separations. The use of a fluorinated long-chain pyridinium bromide is specifically disclosed.
