Salting-out effect on facilitated transport membranes for CO2 separation has been revealed. The salts, especially fluoride salt and polyoxometalates, contained in the membrane may decrease the permeance of CO2 to some extent but remarkably increase the selectivity of CO2/N2, as a result of synergistic interactions between facilitated transport and salting-out.
