Inverse colloidal crystal membranes : formation, surface modification and applications
MetadataShow full item record
Inverse colloidal crystal (ICC) membranes have many advantages, such as highly uniform pore size, fully interconnected pores, and high porosity, over commercially available porous membranes as a selective barrier for ultrafiltration and microfiltration. However, making an ICC membrane which is applicable in separations using reported ICC membrane formation methods has been still not successful yet. We describe here a new ICC membrane formation method, vertical cell (VC) assembly method, to make ICC separation membranes in a simple, low-cost way. The VC assembly method is a versatile colloidal ...
