Interfacially Polymerized Membranes for Molecular SeparationsID# 2018-4769
Application & Market Utility
This invention comprises novel TFC membranes containing a small molecule pore element separated from a polymeric matrix element, enabling enhanced performance for gaseous, aqueous, organic solvent, and small molecule separation relative to leading membrane technologies. Preliminary membrane test results show selectivity performance around ~70 to ~300, indicating impactful savings in industrial processes (compared to conventional distillation processes).
