Over the past decade, solvent resistant nanofiltration (SRNF) has gained a lot of attention, as it is a promising energy- and waste-efficient unit process to separate mixtures down to a molecular level. This critical review focuses on all aspects related to this new burgeoning technology, occasionally also including literature obtained on aqueous(More)
Due to the shape-selectivity of the pores and the induced polymer crosslinking, zeolite filled elastomers are excellent solvent-resistant nanofiltration membranes with enhanced fluxes and retentions compared to commercial membranes, allowing use in non-polar solvents and at high temperatures.
Asymmetric, nanosized zeolite-filled solvent resistant nanofiltration (SRNF) membranes, prepared from emulsified polyimide (PI) solutions via the earlier reported solidification of emulsified polymer solutions via phase inversion (SEPPI) method, were optimized for their performance in the separation of rose bengal (RB) from 2-propanol (IPA). All membranes(More)
Combinatorial strategies are for the first time applied in membrane technology and prove to be a powerful new tool in the search for novel membrane materials. The selected system for this study is a polyimide solvent-resistant nanofiltration membrane prepared via phase inversion. The phase inversion process is a typical membrane synthesis procedure(More)
The convergent synthesis of a series of porphyrin-functionalized pyrimidine dendrimers has been accomplished by a procedure involving the nucleophilic aromatic substitution (NAS) as a key reaction step. The resulting dendritic porphyrin catalysts show high activity in the light-induced generation of singlet oxygen ((1)O2) from ground-state oxygen. These(More)
Thiols and phosphines are the most widely used organic ligands to attain atomically precise metal nanoclusters (NCs). Here, we used simple hydrides (e.g., H-) as ligands along with phos-phines, such as triphenylphosphine (TPP), 1,2-bis(diphenylphosphino)ethane [DPPE], and tris(4-fluorophenyl)phosphine [TFPP] to design and synthesize a new class of(More)
