Abstract [en]

In this entry, properties of polymers, such as crystallinity, hydrophilicity/hydrophobicity, molecular weight, chemical property, thermal property, mechanical property, and electrochemical property are first discussed in relation to suitability of polymers for membrane materials. Various methods of membrane preparation from polymeric materials are described. These methods include the phase inversion technique, methods to coat a thin layer on a porous substrate, methods to modify membrane surfaces, and methods to prepare dry membranes. Examples of polymers used to prepare the membranes for different membrane processes such as reverse osmosis, nanofiltration, ultrafiltration, microfiltration, membrane gas and vapor separation, pervaporation, electrodialysis, and fuel cell are also given.
