Functional membranes and porous polymer materials

Polyethersulfone microfiltration membrane

Membrane based filtration systems have become increasingly important in recent years for various applications such as hemodialysis, drinking water and wastewater purification, sterile filtration and beverage production.
The variety of different applications requires specific adaptation of polymer membranes to reduce/prevent fouling, to generate catalytically active membrane surfaces, or to achieve stable and high membrane performance.
