Description

Microporous Membrane and Membrane Reactors is mainly focused on structure, preparation, characterization and applications of microporous membranes and membrane reactors. It also includes the transport mechanisms through a range of microporous membranes. The book is a key reference text for R&D managers in industry interested in the development of gas separation and water/waste treatment technologies as well as academic researchers and postgraduate students working in the broader area of strategic material production, separation and purification. The book offers a comprehensive coverage of current methods for the preparation of microporous membranes, their characterization and properties abd relates them to various potential applications in gas separation and water treatment. This book illustrates many aspects of the different procedures used to design and fabrication of microporous membrane and membrane reactors.

Key Features

  • Reviews gas separation and water treatment processes and relates them to various applications
  • Outlines the use of microporous membranes in gas separations and water treatment
  • Introduces the various types of microporous membranes (graphene, polymeric etc) and their mechanism of action
  • Provides simulation models of the various processes
