Superhydrophobic nano-composite polypropylene capillary membranes were fabricated for membrane distillation and crystallization by coating the surface with TiO2 and fluoro-silane compounds. The membrane distillation performance was investigated during direct contact membrane distillation and vacuum membrane distillation, and the crystallization behavior of these membranes was observed in real-time. Crystallization on hydrophobic and superhydrophobic membranes differed, with crystal growth… CONTINUE READING
