Table of Contents

1. Introduction to Nanostructured Membranes
2. Membranes for Blue Energy Conversion by Pressure Retarded Osmosis
3. Membranes for Blue Energy Conversion by Reverse Electrodialysis
4. Nanostructures Membranes for Gas Separation
5. Mixed Matrix Membranes for Gas Separation
6. Membranes for Flow Batteries: Overview and Advances


Nano Enhanced and Nanostructured Polymer-based Membranes for Energy and Environmental Applications deals with composite, in most cases hybrid polymer-based membranes, for three separate application fields, energy conversion, energy storage and water treatment and recovery. Each chapter clearly explains the various membrane processes and details the corresponding advanced membranes used. Currently, there are no other similar books that deal with these three hot topics from the point-of-view of real applications. As there is growing need for better membranes in several emerging application fields, especially those relating to energy conversion, storage, water treatment and recycling, this book is all the more timely.

Key Features

  • Discusses interdisciplinary content by a single author, approaching synthesis and development of materials from the perspective of their processability
  • Describes the novel aspects of membrane science that is related to energy storage, conversion and wastewater treatment
  • Presents an emphasis on scientific results which have an impact on real applications in terms of renewable and clean energy challenges


Renewable and environmentally-friendly clean energy professionals and consultants, materials scientists, Ph.D and under-graduate students on materials science courses
