The electrokinetic properties and selectivity of an acetyl cellulose membrane with respect to 0.0001 mol/L sodium chloride solutions in water–ethanol mixtures have been studied. The electrical conductivity, streaming potential, and filtration and selectivity characteristics of the membrane have been measured. It has been found that, in solutions with alcohol contents of 4 and 12%, the membrane selectivity with respect to sodium chloride is increased and decreased relative to that in an aqueous solution, respectively. No correlation between the membrane selectivity and its surface charge has been observed. The membrane has been found to possess a slight selectivity (20–26%) with respect to ethanol. It has been hypothesized that the solvation enthalpy of electrolyte ions changes differently in a free solution and membrane pores at different contents of ethanol in the mixtures, thereby affecting the membrane selectivity.
