Abstract: The objectives of the research are to develop polymeric hollow fibre thin-film composite membranes for organic solvent membrane separation processes, and ultimately to demonstrate the scalability of this technology. The study can be subdivided into the following sections: i. Fabricate solvent resistant thin-film composite hollow fibre membrane for low pressure OSN processes. ii. Modify the fabrication process of the substrate to improve selectivity and scalability of the hollow fibre membrane. iii. Tune the selective layer to achieve higher selectivity for pharmaceutical application. iv. Demonstrate the scalability and long-term stability of fabricated hollow fibre thin film composite membranes. v. Develop a thin-film composite hollow fibre membrane for organic solvent forward osmosis in pharmaceutical application.
