Membrane Surface Energy Required to Delay Gypsum Scaling in Brackish Water Reverse Osmosis Systems
This presentation will discuss efforts to investigate the favorable role of a high surface energy to delay the crystallization and adsorption of gypsum to thin-film composite membranes at concentrations relevant to reverse osmosis systems treating brackish water....
Brush Away Those Layer-By-Layer Membranes: Fundamentals of Polyelectrolytic Brush Membranes
This project includes fundamental studies of surface initiated atom transfer radical polymerization (SI-ATRP) on membranes to pinpoint methods to control brush density and location, brush length/rates of growth, and membrane stability. These fundamentals will be utilized to produce polyelectrolytic polymer brushes with distinct alternately-charged ...
