Abstract: One dimensional (1D) nanostructure materials such as nanowires, nanofibers, and nanorods with porous structures have potential for use in various applications. Electrospinning is one of the versatile techniques with the ability of producing cost-effective, large production, highly porous nanofibers and membrane with large surface to volume ratios. Poly ether sulfone (PES) is a kind of special engineering plastic with good processing characteristics. In this paper, synthesis of PES membrane was investigated by two main methods, i.e. phase inversion and electrospiing. For electrospining, the main effective parameters such as concentration of polymer and solvent, for finding the optimized condition of electrospun PES membrane was studied. The produced membranes were characterized by SEM for morphology and BET observation of surface area, permeability, flux, and mechanical propertise for different applications.

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.
