Organic/inorganic hybrid membranes based on novel molecular nanosponges for water purification

Objective

The proposed project concerns the development of an advanced hybrid membrane technology for water filtration based on novel nanosponge polymers of high encapsulating ability for toxic contaminants. The polymeric nanosponge materials will be impregnated into the pore structure of either a ceramic or a hollow-fiber polymeric support. Lab-scale and pilot-scale filter systems will he designed and constructed. Such a water filtration system is currently not available in the world market and it will be able to remove organic contaminants to extremely low levels. The nanosponge polymers offer processing flexibility and the development of this technology could be expanded from a specialty product to a novel membrane technology. This technology will exclude even small organic molecules that otherwise leak through reverse osmosis membranes or activated carbon.
