About this item
Membrane Characterization provides a valuable source of information on how membranes are characterized. This is an extremely limited field that is confined to only brief descriptions in various technical papers available on-line. For the first time, the reader is able to understand the importance of membrane characterization, the techniques required and the fundamental theory behind them. This book focuses on characterization techniques that are normally used for membranes prepared from polymeric, ceramic and composite materials.
- Features specific details on many membrane characterization techniques for various membrane materials of industrial and academic interest
- Contains examples of international best practice techniques for the evaluation of several membrane parameters including pore size, charge and fouling
- Discusses various membrane models more suitable to a specific application
- Provides examples of ab initio calculations for design, optimisation and scale-up of processes based on characterisation data
