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. By virtue of the authors' expertise, they utilize stimuli responsive membranes to address issues relating to different industries.

The book covers history and development, merits and demerits, mechanisms of transport and fouling, membranes applicability to various diverse areas, and preparation and characterization techniques of membranes. Then, 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.
