Description

Stimuli Responsive Polymeric Membranes: Smart Polymeric Membranes explains the fundamentals and advances in topics relating to the field of membrane science. It elaborately explains concepts relating to stimuli responsive membranes, with special importance given down to minute details. Material selection, preparation, characterization and applications of various stimuli responsive membranes are extensively addressed, and their relevance (including examples) is included. The book covers history and development, merits and demerits, mechanisms of transport and fouling, applicability of membranes to various diverse areas, and preparation and characterization techniques of membranes. Next, the concept of fouling and its remedial actions is discussed. Finally, promising fields of research in the membrane science and future perspectives of membrane science field are explored.

About the Authors

Mihir Kumar Purkait

Dr. Mihir Kumar Purkait is a Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering, Chair Professor of National Jal Jeevan Mission, Dean of Alumni and External Affairs, and former Head of Centre for the Environment at Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati (IITG). Prior to joining as faculty at IITG (2004), he received his Ph.D. and M.Tech in Chemical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur (IITKGP) after completing his B.Tech and B.Sc (Hons) in Chemistry from the University of Calcutta. He has received several awards like; Dr. A.V. Rama Rao Foundation’s Best Ph.D. Thesis and Research Award in Chemical Engineering from IIChE (2007), BOYSCAST Fellow award (2009-10) from the DST, Young Engineers Award in the field of Chemical Engineering from the Institute of Engineers (India, 2009), Young Scientist Medal award from the Indian National Science Academy (INSA, 2009). Prof. Purkait is a Fellow of several academic and professional body/societies. His current research activities are focused in four distinct areas viz. i) advanced separation technologies, ii) waste to energy, iii) smart materials for various applications, and iv) process intensification. In each of the areas, his goal is to synthesis stimuli responsive materials and to develop a more fundamental understanding of the factors governing the performance of the chemical and biochemical processes. He has around 20 years of experience in academics and research and published more than 250 papers in different reputed journals (Citation: >12000, h-index = 64, 10 index = 152). He has 10 patents and completed 35 sponsored and consultancy projects from various funding agencies. Prof. Purkait has guided 20 Ph.D. students. He is the author of 10 books and several book chapters published in reputed Internal journals.
