Description

Polymer Nanocomposite Membranes for Pervaporation assesses recent applications in the pervaporation performance of polymer nanocomposites of different length scales. The book discusses the effects of a range of nanofillers, their dispersion, the effect of different polymers, and organic and inorganic nanomaterials in the pervaporation process. In addition, the book explores how the different properties of a variety of nanocomposite materials make them better for use in different types of liquids, while also discussing the challenges of using different nanocomposites for this purpose effectively and safely. In particular, polymer nanocomposites for g nanoscale dispersion, filler/polymer interactions, and morphology are addressed.

This is an important reference source for materials scientists, chemical engineers and environmental engineers who want to learn more about how polymer nanocomposites are being used to make the pervaporation separation process more effective.

Key Features

  • Explores the progress that has been made in recent years in using polymer nanocomposites to enhance the pervaporation separation process
  • Discusses the different properties of a variety of nanocomposite classes, assessing which situations they should best be used in
  • Outlines major challenges in safely and effectively using polymer nanocomposites in the pervaporation separation process
