Fundamentals of gas separation, vapour permeation and pervaporation

Marcel Mulder

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademic


    Membrane separations have been emerged as a mature separation technique with a high commercial impact. It is a heterogeneous technology making use of different separation mechanisms based on different membrane morphologies. A classification can be made based on membrane morphology1. In this chapter nonporous membranes will be emphasised which can be used for gas separation, vapour permeation and pervaporation. Here, transport occurs by a solution-diffusion mechanism.
