Mixed-matrix membranes (MMMs) were prepared by combinations of two different kinds of porous fillers [metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) HKUST-1 and ZIF-8, and zeolite silicalite-1] and polysulfone. In the search for filler synergy, the MMMs were applied to the separation of CO(2)/N(2), CO(2)/CH(4), O(2)/N(2), and H(2)/CH(4) mixtures and we found important(More)
Mixed matrix membranes (MMMs) composed of a glassy polymer (polysulfone) and the flexible metal organic framework NH(2)-MIL-53(Al) exhibit excellent separation properties. In contrast to most reported membranes, CO(2)/CH(4) separation selectivity increases with pressure, related to the flexibility of the filler.
A series of mixed matrix membranes were prepared comprising polysulfone Udel matrix and ordered mesoporous silica spheres as filler with loadings varying between 0 and 32 wt %. The interaction between the filler and the polymer was studied by scanning and transmission electron microscopy, thermogravimetry, differential scanning calorimetry and dynamic(More)
The use of ultrathin films as selective layers in composite membranes offers significant advantages in gas separation for increasing productivity while reducing the membrane size and energy costs. In this contribution, composite membranes have been obtained by the successive deposition of approximately 1 nm thick monolayers of a polymer of intrinsic(More)
