Principles of chemical separations with environmental applications by R. D Noble( Book )

16 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This introduction to chemical separations technology presents the chemical and/or physical basis of different techniques and explains how to evaluate them for design and analysis. Chemical separations are of central importance in many areas of environmental science, whether it is cleaning up polluted water or soil, the treatment of discharge streams from chemical processes, or modification of a specific process to decrease its environmental impact. This textbook is suitable for undergraduate and graduate students taking courses on environmental separations or environmental engineering. Many worked examples and over 100 homework problems are key highlights. (Midwest)

Membrane separations technology : principles and applications by R. D Noble( Book )

20 editions published between 1995 and 2003 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The field of membrane separation technology is presently in a state of rapid growth and innovation. Many different membrane separation processes have been developed during the past half century and new processes are constantly emerging from academic, industrial, and governmental laboratories. While new membrane separation processes are being conceived with remarkable frequency, existing processes are also being constantly improved in order to enhance their economic competitiveness. Significant improvements are currently being made in many aspects of membrane separation technology: in the development of new membrane materials with higher selectivity and/or permeability, in the fabrication methods for high-flux asymmetric or composite membranes, in membrane module construction and in process design. Membrane separation technology is presently being used in an impressive variety of applications and has generated businesses totalling over one billion U.S. dollars annually. The main objective of this book is to present the principles and applications of a variety of membrane separation processes from the unique perspectives of investigators who have made important contributions to their fields. Another objective is to provide the reader with an authoritative resource on various aspects of this rapidly growing technology. The text can be used by someone who wishes to learn about a general area of application as well as by the knowledgeable person seeking more detailed information

Design and development of new polymer membranes for water filtration applications by Evan S Hatakeyama( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The overall objective of this thesis research is to design and develop new polymer membranes that overcome several limitations that exist in conventional water filtration membranes. Two separate research thrusts were explored. In the first study, new polymer coatings for water ultrafiltration (UF) membranes were developed to reduce protein adsorption and fouling. Fifteen different functional monomers were synthesized, coated, and polymerized onto UF supports. Their resistance to protein adsorption and membrane protein fouling were then examined. For the first time, certain simple quaternary phosphonium- and ammonium-based polymer coatings were shown to be effective at resisting protein adsorption and membrane fouling. The second research objective is to design and develop new nanoporous polymer membranes with uniform, sub-1-nanometer pores for water purification via a size-exclusion mechanism. Cross-linkable lyotropic liquid crystals (LLCs) were examined due to their ability to self-organize into regular, porous nanostructures when mixed with water. Photo-radical cross-linking of these LLC assemblies resulted in robust polymer membranes with uniform nanopores. A 1st-generation LLC membrane containing a type I bicontinuous cubic (QI) phase structure and 3D-interconnected nanopores was made using a gemini phosphonium monomer. Comprehensive water filtration experiments and the use of a modified Donnan-steric pore model (DSPM) showed that this membrane has an effective pore diameter of 0.90 nm with a monodisperse pore size. It can remove small organic and inorganic solutes better than a nanofiltration (NF) membrane and almost as well as a reverse osmosis (RO) membrane. It also resisted chlorine degradation and protein adsorption. However, this monomer is difficult and expensive to synthesis and process. A 2 nd-generation QI-phase gemini ammonium-based monomer was developed to overcome these issues. Two homologues were found to form Q I-phase. Water transport studies using supported QI-phase membranes of the 2nd-generation monomer demonstrated their ability to rejected solutes at a similar level to the 1st-generation system. Additionally, they are significantly easier and less expensive to process and synthesize. Potentially, these nanoporous polymer membranes have applications in water desalination and NF. Future work will examine thin-film processing and controlling the pore diameter of these LLC membranes in the 0.5--5 nm range

Design, Development, and Evaluation of Thin-Film Composite Bicontinuous Cubic Lyotropic Liquid Crystal Polymer Membranes for Water Filtration Applications by Blaine Michael Carter( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Water filtration experiments on TFC QI membranes demonstrate they have similar rejection performance to previous QI-phase membranes, except the flux is ca. 10 times greater due to the much thinner active layer. Overall, TFC QI membranes have performance characteristics in-between conventional NF and RO membranes. They reject neutral solutes like a porous NF membrane and reject monovalent and divalent salts comparable to a RO membrane at brackish water feed concentrations. Additional water filtration experiments revealed that anion-exchange has a significant impact on the flux of TFC Q I membranes. The flux of TFC QI membranes can be drastically tuned by exposing the membrane to feeds containing different anions with little to no change in the rejection performance
