Surface modification of RO membrane by grafting hydrophilic switchable polymer brushes

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.
