Introduction

The need to reduce pollution and the waste of energy and resources imposes a wider diffusion of environmentally friendly membrane systems. The expanding domain of membrane operations demands tailored materials with unprecedented performances and resistance to temperature, chemicals and solvents, at affordable costs. Today, new polymeric, inorganic and hybrid materials are specifically engineered for the preparation of advanced membranes for industrial applications.

This e-book gives readers an overview of the state-of-the-art materials science of synthetic membranes. Membranes for natural gas treatment, separation of organics, fuel cells, high and low temperature catalytic membrane reactors are some of the subjects covered by this volume.

This e-book will be of interest to specialists in membrane science and technology, as well as for graduate students and researchers in chemical engineering, chemistry and materials science, both in the industry and in the academy.
