An updated guide to the growing field of nanofiltration including the most important industrial applications 

With contributions from an international panel of experts, the revised second edition of Nanofiltration contains a comprehensive overview of this growing field. The book covers the basic principles of nanofiltration including the design and characterizations of nanofiltration membranes. The expert contributors highlight the broad ranges of industrial applications including water treatment, food, pulp and paper, and textiles.  

The book explores photocatalytic nanofiltration reactors, organic solvent nanofiltration, as well as nanofiltration in metal and acid recovery. In addition, information on the most recent developments in the field are examined including nanofiltration retentate treatment and renewable energy-powered nanofiltration. The authors also consider the future of nanofiltration materials such as carbon- as well as polymer-based materials. This important book: 

  • Explores the constantly growing field of membrane science  
  • Examines the growing industrial sector’s use of membranes for water purification 
  • Covers the most important applications with a thorough overview of the myraid applications in industry 
  • Contains a section on new membrane materials, including carbon-based and polymer-based materials 
  • Includes information on artificial ion and water channels as biomimetic membranes  

Written for water chemists, environmental chemists, chemical engineers, food chemists, and materials scientists, the second edition of Nanofiltration provides a comprehensive overview of the field, outlines the principles of the technology, explores the industrial applications, and discusses new materials.
