1 Carbon nanotubes Among the various nanomaterials studied, CNTs have received a great deal of attention. With high hydrophilicity, good chemical stability, and high surface area, CNTs induce highly antibacterial properties and increase the porosity of nanocomposite membranes. , 2013). , 2012). , 2011) or evaporation (Tang, Zhang, Wang, Fu, and Zhang, 2009). Blending has some advantages over other methods. The method is simple and has mild conditions, reproducibility, and capability for industrialization.

All rights reserved. 4 Advances in Membrane Technologies for Water Treatment of the membrane. Methods to overcome the challenges of membrane modification have been well established for polymeric membranes.

Rahimpour and Madaeni (2007) prepared PES membrane by blending different concentrations of CAP (20, 30, and 40 wt%) and PVP (2, 4, and 8 wt%) as a pore former. Contact angle measurements showed that the hydrophilicity of membranes was enhanced for all compositions because of numerous acidic and carbonyl functional groups in the CAP structure. Pure water flux, milk water permeation, and protein rejection also increased with an increase in PES/CAP compositions up to 80/20. Moreover, the antifouling property of PES membranes was improved by adding even small amounts of CAP into the casting solution.
