Challenges and opportunities for mixed-matrix membranes for gas separation

Author affiliations

Abstract

Mixed-Matrix Membranes (MMMs) combining the benefits of both polymeric and inorganic materials have become a focus for the next-generation gas separation membranes. In this review, major challenges surrounding MMMs and the strategies to tackle these challenges are given in detail. The selection criteria of polymeric and inorganic materials are discussed in terms of their physical and chemical compatibility as well as large scale fabrication issues. Major models for separation performance prediction of MMMs are reviewed in terms of their interrelations and limitations. A discussion is provided regarding the future direction of MMMs.
