Characteristics, performance and stability of polyethersulfone ultrafiltration membranes prepared by phase separation method using different macromolecular additives
Abstract Polyethersulfone (PES) ultrafiltration (UF) membranes were prepared by non-solvent-induced phase separation (NIPS) method using different macromolecular additives, polyvinylpyrrolidoneExpand
Towards practical implementations of membrane distillation
Membrane distillation, which combines thermal desalination and porous hydrophobic membrane as non-wetting contact media, is currently gaining increasing important in membrane processes. However, theExpand
Photografted thin polymer hydrogel layers on PES ultrafiltration membranes: characterization, stability, and influence on separation performance.
Results suggest that PEGMA- and SPE-based composite membranes at a sufficient degree of graft modification showed much higher adsorptive fouling resistance than unmodified PES membranes of similar or larger nominal cutoff, and was confirmed in UF experiments with myoglobin solutions. Expand
Ultrafiltration of polysaccharide–protein mixtures: Elucidation of fouling mechanisms and fouling control by membrane surface modification
Abstract This work describes the fouling behavior of polysaccharide–protein mixture solutions by investigation of adsorptive and ultrafiltration fouling. Alginate, dextran, myoglobin and bovine serumExpand
Effect of hydrophilic and hydrophobic organic matter on amoxicillin and cephalexin residuals rejection from water by nanofiltration.
Antibiotics such as amoxicillin and cephalexin are a group of pharmaceutical compounds in human medicine practice that have been entered in water bodies. Presence of these compounds in theExpand
Influence of ultrafiltration membrane characteristics on adsorptive fouling with dextrans
Abstract This paper presents a detailed investigation of fouling mechanisms for ultrafiltration membranes with polysaccharides obtained by studying membrane–solute (static adsorption) andExpand
Via surface functionalization by photograft copolymerization to low-fouling polyethersulfone-based ultrafiltration membranes
Abstract Low-fouling ultrafiltration membranes have been prepared by simultaneous photograft copolymerization of poly(ethylene glycol) methacrylate (PEGMA) onto a polyethersulfone (PES) membrane withExpand
High-performance thin-layer hydrogel composite membranes for ultrafiltration of natural organic matter.
The results suggest that the TLHC membranes convincingly displayed a higher adsorptive fouling resistance than unmodified PES UF membranes, and in long-term stirred dead-end UF, a much lower fouling was observed forTLHC membranes than for commercial membranes with the same flux and rejection.

Dextran fouling of polyethersulfone ultrafilltrationmembranes-Causes, extent and consequences
In a recent paper [Susanto, Ulbricht, J. Membr. Sci. 266 (2005) 132], we showed that dextran does foul polyethersulfone (PES) ultrafiltration (UF) membranes by contact of the solution with theExpand
Wastewater treatment by nanofiltration membranes
Lower energy consumption compared to reverse osmosis (RO) and higher rejection compared to ultrafiltration make nanofiltration (NF) membrane get more and more attention for wastewater treatment. NFExpand
