Surface modification of RO membrane by grafting hydrophilic switchable polymer brushes

M.A. Abbas, N.M. Ahmad*, National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST), Pakistan

The grafting of stimuli responsive polymer brushes has been explored on the surface of various membrane using surface-initiated atom transfer radical polymerization (SI-ATRP).

Surface morphology, permeation flux, salt rejection and pore sizes are investigated as function of external stimuli particularly the pH effect.
