Article Preview

In this paper, the α-Al2O3 microfiltration membrane modified by nano-ZnO coating was obtained using zinc nitrate and urea as raw materials via homogeneous precipitation method. The effects of reaction temperature and coating times on the modification of the membrane were emphatically studied. The test results show that the flux of modified membrane is raised by 43% when the nano-ZnO particles (5 ~ 10 nm) are smoothly and densely coated on the surface of the membrane. The mechanism of the modification was studied by means of TEM, FTIR, XPS, Zeta electric potential analyzer, etc.
