Event description
Polyamide Membrane Innovation: An Industrial Perspective

About this Event

The Third Coast Water Seminars are a monthly research series hosted by Current in partnership with Argonne National Laboratory, Northwestern University, the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, the University of Illinois at Chicago, and the University of Chicago. The series is intended to share the latest research in water and water-related technologies/areas of need to spur collaboration and solve pressing water challenges.

This seminar titled, Polyamide Membrane Innovation: An Industrial Perspective, will be delivered by Dr. Jeff Wilbur. Polyamide membrane chemistry, network structure, and morphology in reverse osmosis and nanofiltration membranes govern performance but the understanding between structure and transport is incomplete and limited by the membrane characterization state of the art. Dr. Wilbur will give an industrial perspective on membrane innovation needs and discuss novel characterization approaches that provide insight into how membrane structure relates to those needs.
