The Use of Arabic Gum as an Additive to Polysulfone Membranes
Arabic gum (AG) as an additive to the casting solutions of polysulfone (PS) was investigated in this work to increase the hydrophilicity of PS ultrafiltration membranes. Various AG loading (0.1-3.0 wt. percent) in PS/dimethylacetamide (DMAc) dope solutions were prepared to fabricate PS membranes using phase inversion technique. The hydrophilicity a...
