Preparation and Characterization of Antimicrobial PES Ultra-Filtration Membrane Modified with Capsaicin

Abstract:

Article Preview

The polyethersulfone ultra-filtration membrane was prepared by phase inversion method using polyethersulfone(PES), polyethylene glycol 400(PEG400) and N,N- dimethylamide(DMAC) as materials, and was modified by adding a capsaicin monomer named MBHBA which possess antibacterial property. The effects of MBHBA content on the ultra-filtration membrane performance were discussed. The results showed that the addition of MBHBA monomer effectively increased the membrane flux. And the modified membrane had strong inhibitory activity against Escherichia coli.
