patterned PVDF membrane

Paper on new method of patterning microporous membrane is published!

Aug. 29, 2020

Check out our newly published paper on patterning microporous PVDF membrane using thermally induced phase separation (TIPS process). When TIPS process is confined within a patterned soft mold (made of PDMS), the features on the molds are replicated onto the PVDF membrane after solvent extraction. The patterning fadelity is between...

support layer resistane

Our paper on understanding the true resistance of support layer in thin film composite membrane is published!

Aug. 29, 2020

Check out our new publication on understanding the true permeation resistance of porous support in high-pressure RO process. It is conventional wisdom in the membrane community that support layer does not contribute to the overall resistance of RO membranes. Our study show that this is not true under high pressure...
