Fabrication of Polyethersulfone Membranes

Description: Ultrafiltration membranes are commercially made through non-solvent induced phase separation (NIPS). In this method, a polymer solution is cast as a film and immersed in a non-solvent, which results in formation of a porous polymer with nanometer size pores. The obtained porous film can separate solid particles, proteins, and macromolecules from water. Completion Objectives:…

Brewer and Foudazi receive $224,243 from WRRI

Dr. Catherine Brewer has been funded by the Water Resources Research Institute (WRRI) for her proposal entitled, “Biochar for Desalination Concentrate Management.”  Total funding provided for this project is $74,377. Alternative Waters Problem: Disposal of concentrate from brackish water desalination is limited by concerns of salt leaching into and contaminating surface and ground waters. These concerns, and…

Synthesis of MOFs by High-throughput De Novo Approach

Description: Recently, new classes of molecularly designed crystalline porous solids have been emerged as potential materials for gas separation and storage purposes. These solid sorbents include metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) with subclass of zeolitic imidazolate frameworks (ZIFs), and covalent organic frameworks (COFs). MOFs are generally synthesized by de novo approach in which a transition metal salt…
