About this book

Smart membranes that respond to environmental stimuli are gaining attention because of their potential use in a variety of applications, from drug delivery to water treatment. Their surface characteristics and/or permeation properties, including pressure-driven hydraulic permeability and concentration-driven diffusional permeability, can be adjusted in response to small chemical and/or physical stimuli in the environment. This book will cover topics such as novel design and fabrication strategies, approaches for controlling structure and performance, as well as cutting-edge applications of smart membranes. It will deliver new insights and fundamentals for both professionals and newcomers in related fields. Edited by an internationally renowned expert and with contributions from key researchers, Smart Membranes provides a comprehensive overview of the topic. It will appeal to students and researchers across materials science, chemistry, chemical engineering, pharmaceutical science and biomedical science.
