Abstract

The polymer used most often as a membrane for water desalination by reverse osmosis has been cellulose acetate. Reid and Breton[1] originally showed that this material had excellent potential as a reverse osmosis membrane. Loeb and Sourirajan[2] later developed the asymmetric cellulose acetate membrane that is used most extensively at the present time in either a flat sheet or tubular form.
