Coating of ion exchange membranes for selective water treatment
Water treatment processes have a wide variety of possible applications. Apart from the desalination of water, for example for the use as drinking water, the application for a wide range of tasks in industry is possible. At the Chair of Chemical Process Engineering we are working on new membrane based water desalination process.
For many applications membranes which are selective for certain ion types are needed. The scope of this thesis will be to modify membranes and characterize them with different methods regarding their selectivity and mass transport mechanisms.
