Development of high flux thin-film composite membrane for water desalination: a statistical study using response surface methodology
Desalination and Water Treatment
A B S T R A C T High flux thin-film composite reverse osmosis membranes for brackish water desalination have been fabricated by interfacial polymerization based on aromatic polyamide chemistry. A response surface methodology was used to optimize the concentrations of the monomers, 1,3-Diaminobenzene (MPDA) and 1,3,5-Benzenetricarbonyl trichloride (TMC), and a fluxenhancing additive, Dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO). The membranes prepared showed a salt rejection of more than 95%. The membranesdoi:10.1080/19443994.2013.809025 fatcat:37l5euqscnf4lgn2n76vtvmxsq
