VERY LOW SURFACE ENERGY HETEROPHASE POLYMERIC MATERIALS FOR MEMBRANE SEPARATION

This paper describes a new research program related to the development of minimally adhesive polymer membrane materials based on ultraflow surface energy fluorocarbon polymers copolymerized with hydrophillic or lipophilic monomers to limit fouling in reverse osmosis and pervaporation applications. These novel materials are being incorporated as ultra-thin barrier layers in high performance thin film composite membranes. Early results from this program, including polymers synthesized and membrane formation studies, are described.
