Carbon-based Membranes for Separation Processes
This book provides a significant overview of carbon-related membranes. It will cover the development of carbon related membranes and membrane modules from its onset to the latest research on carbon mixed matrix membranes. After reviewing progress in the field, the authors indicate future research directions and prospective development. The authors also attempt to provide a guideline for the readers who would like to establish their own laboratories for carbon membrane research. For this purpose, detailed information on preparation, characterization and testing of various types of carbon membrane is provided. Design and construction of carbon membrane modules are also described in detail.
This is the first book exclusively dedicated to carbon membranes and the carbon-related membranes. It contains detailed information on the preparation, characterization and testing of carbon membranes for separation processes. It includes real life examples and schematics, and details of experimental methods so that readers can conduct experiments themselves after reading the chapters on the experimental methods. Real experimental data is analyzed in a theoretical framework.
