Properties of Aromatic Polyamide and Polyamide-Hydrazide Membranes
The search for new and improved membrane compositions has continued on a large scale since the discovery of cellulose acetate as a desalination membrane by Reid and Breton, and subsequent improvements in flux demonstrated by Loeb and Sourirajan [2,3]. Such efforts have generally been rewarded with only modest success, restricted primarily to modifications of cellulose esters.
