Abstract
GAS SEPARATION MEMBRANES ARE FINDING A NUMBER OF INDUSTRIAL USES. HOWEVER, A BREAKTHROUGH IN MEMBRANE SELECTIVITY AND PERMEABILITY WILL BE REQUIRED BEFORE MEMBRANES WILL BE ABLE TO DISPLACE MORE CONVENTIONAL TECHNIQUES ON A LARGE SCALE. THE PLAN IS TO PREPARE PLASMA-COATED COMPOSITE MEMBRANES THAT HAVE THE POTENTIAL FOR ACHIEVING THIS BREAKTHROUGH IN MEMBRANE PERFORMANCE. THESE MEMBRANES ARE MADE BY DEPOSITING A THIN FILM OF PLASMA-POLYMERIZED MATERIAL ON A SUITABLE SUPPORT. BY CHOOSING THE OPTIMUM SUPPORT AND COATING TECHNIQUES, HIGH-PERFORMANCE MEMBRANES WILL BE PRODUCED. PHASE I WILL PRODUCE SAMPLES OF FILM FOR LABORATORY EVALUATION. LATER, IN A PHASE II PROGRAM, SMALL SPIRAL- WOUND MEMBRANE MODULES WOULD BE PREPARED.
