Membrane Separation Technology

This would provide a complete understanding of the microstructure variation in an ultrathin composite membrane. In regard to the membrane pervaporation performance, this research would also provide an understanding of the principle of pervaporation rate and the mechanism of pervaporation separation transport. Both of this understanding would then furnish significant information about the areas of membrane structure design and membrane performance prediction.

Positron Science

In this research, a polyamide composite membrane was fabricated, and its free volume size and distribution and variation in the multilayer structure and chemical composition to understand the relationship between the membrane separation performance and free volume. And setting up a two-dimensional age-momentum correlation (2D-AMOC) technique that can separate momentum spectroscopy from the original one-dimensional positron annihilation lifetime spectroscopy and that can quantitatively obtain the relationship between chemical composition and free volume variation at each layer in a composite membrane by means of the relationship between momentum and annihilation lifetime based on conducting an annihilation lifetime analysis for a specific momentum range (3γ or 2γannihilation).
