Overview

Our book will give a complete overview of modern day membrane science,technology,and applications. Key Features: heavily illustrated; written by top expert in the field; illustrates major applications; give a complete overview of the entire field.

The most comprehensive guide to today's membrane technologies and theory ever published,this authoritative,inclusive reference is a rich source of ideas for valuable new applications,illustrated information on leading-edge systems,and on-the-job problem-solving help. Written by an expert who is both a leading researcher and a leading practitioner,Richard W. Baker's Membrane Technology and Applications brings you: a complete overview of membrane science,technology,and applications; practical uses and how-to's for a broad range of fields; comprehensive coverage of membrane preparation,modules,and transport theory; details on concentration polarization,reverse osmosis,microfiltration,gas separation,pervaporation,carrier-facilitated transport,and medical uses; more than 300 clear illustrations. Offering simplicity of operation and low energy consumption,fluid-separating membrane systems are widely used in industry,research,and medicine. As their attractiveness,importance,and relevance grows,the push is on to find even more applications. This book will certainly help. No other sourcebook offers such complete and timely coverage,nor does it so readily.
