Paper Title:
Synthesis and Characterization of PES/TiO2 Nanofibers Membrane
  Abstract

An important recent discovery in the membrane science is the polymeric nanofiber membrane. Membranes have many applications in protein purification, wastewater treatment and fuel cells. One of the versatile technique with the ability of producing cost-effective, highly porous non-woven membranes with large surface area is electrospining. In this study the effect of TiO2 nanoparticles in membrane performance has been investigated. A PES/TiO2 nanofibers membrane has higher flux and permeability than a pristine PES membrane. Also the measurments show that the surface area of the membrane will increase by addition of TiO2 nanoparticles. Moreover, the contact angle was investigated.
