Glycidal Methacrylate (GMA) has been found to be a useful epoxy in the attachment of chelating agents onto the surface for polymer membranes. The treated membranes were examined using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS). The results of the analysis are discussed, and suggest the modified membranes have a potential to be used as low-biofouling membranes in the future.
