Abstract
THE PROPOSED WORK IS TO DEVELOP HIGHLY CHARGED, ULTRAFILTRATION MEMBRANES BY THE CHEMICAL GRAFTING APPROACH FOR THE PARTIAL DEMINERALIZATION OF SALINE GROUNDWATERS FOR IRRIGATION PURPOSES. THE KEY TO ACHIEVING THIS OBJECTIVE IS TO DETERMINE WHAT INITIATOR-MONOMER-CATALYST-SOLVENT CHEMICAL SYSTEMS CAN ACHIEVE THE HIGH MEMBRANE CHARGE DENSITIES NECESSARY FOR THE ENHANCED REJECTION OF MULTIVALENT IONS AT HIGH FLUX LEVELS AND LOW OPERATING PRESSURES. MEMBRANES MADE FROM VARIOUS CHEMICAL SYSTEMS AND PLOYSULFONE SUBSTRATE MATERIALS WILL BE TESTED FOR SURFACE CHARGE DENSITY, REJECTION AND FLUX USING SYNTHESIZED BRACKISH WATERS.
