The Phenomenological Characterization of DP-1 Membranes
During the past few years, great interest and active research have been directed to desalination of brackish water and seawater via reverse osmosis. Until recently cellulose acetate membranes were the only practical desalinating membranes developed; however, with the discovery of permselective, aromatic, nitrogen-containing polymeric membranes by Richter and Hoehn, a whole new class of practical reverse osmotic membranes is available. These new membranes are superior to cellulose acetate membranes with respect to their permeation characteristics and polymer properties.
