Research a procedure of charging membrane surfaces with copper (Cu?²) to control biofouling. Characterize the the copper-charged membranes chemically, structerly and morphologically. Investigating copper leaching and biofilm formation. Experiments illustrated successful chelation of copper to cellulose acetate sheet membrane and a significant reduction in flux decline due to bio-fouling using copper-charged membranes.
