One of the greatest challenges to the sustainability of modern society is an inadequate supply of clean water. Due to its energy-saving and cost-effective features, membrane technology has become an indispensable platform technology for water purification, including seawater and brackish water desalination as well as municipal or industrial wastewater(More)
A facile method for fabricating antifouling and high-flux nanofiltration (NF) membranes was developed based on bioinspired polydopamine (PDA). Polyethersulfone (PES) ultrafiltration membrane as the support was first deposited a thin PDA layer and then chemically modified by a new kind of fluorinated polyamine via Michael addition reaction between(More)
Graphene oxide (GO) is an emerging kind of building block for advanced membranes with tunable passageway for water molecules. To synergistically manipulate the channel and surface structures/properties of GO-based membranes, the different building blocks are combined and the specific interfacial interactions are designed in this study. With vacuum-assisted(More)
In the present study, a facile in situ approach for constructing tunable amphiphilic or hydrophilic antifouling membrane surfaces was demonstrated by exquisitely manipulating the microphase separation and surface segregation behavior of the tailor-made ternary amphiphilic block copolymers during the commonly utilized wet phase inversion membrane-formation(More)

This study offers a unique contribution to the literature by investigating the convergence of province-level carbon dioxide emission intensity among a panel of 30 provinces in China over the period 1990-2010. We use a novel, spatial dynamic panel data model to test the hypotheses of absolute beta convergence and conditional beta convergence. Our results(More)
Some oscillation and non-oscillation criteria for quasi-linear second order equations are obtained. These results are extensions of earlier results of C. which are all about oscillation and non-oscillation criteria of the solution of the second order linear equation. After the proof of the main theorem, two examples are given as the additional remarks of(More)
