This study describes the application of a noninvasive direct microscopic observation method for characterizing fouling of a forward osmosis (FO) membrane. The effect of the draw solution concentration, membrane orientation, and feed spacer on FO fouling was systematically investigated in a cross-flow setup using latex particles as model foulant in the(More)
Aquaporin-based biomimetic membranes have potential as promising membranes for water purification and desalination due to the exceptionally high water permeability and selectivity of aquaporins. However, the design and preparation of such membranes for practical applications are very challenging as the relevant fundamental research is rather limited to(More)
This research focused on combined organic-inorganic fouling and cleaning studies of forward osmosis (FO) membranes. Various organic/inorganic model foulants such as sodium alginate, bovine serum albumin (BSA) and silica nanoparticles were applied to polyamide-polyethersulfone FO hollow fiber membranes fabricated in our laboratory. In order to understand all(More)
