Polysulphone/montmorillonite nanocomposite membranes: Effect of clay addition and polysulphone molecular weight on the membrane properties
Abstract Polysulphone (PSf)/sodium montmorillonite clay (MMT) nanocomposite membranes were prepared via a congruence of the wet-phase inversion and the solution dispersion techniques, and aExpand
