Fabrication of Water Treatment Membrane Using Templating Method - A Critical Review
The progress in the use of templating method for the controlled synthesis of nano, meso and macro porous materials opens many new application areas, one of which is the water treatment membrane. This paper presents a critical review on the fabrication of water treatment membrane using the templating method. Three templating methods are investigated including the block copolymer templating method, the polystyrene beads templating method, and the particles templating method. The future research directions are also discussed.
