Research and Markets: Comprehensive Membrane Science and Engineering.

DUBLIN -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/54t5gk/comprehensive_memb) has announced the addition of Elsevier Science and Technology's new report "Comprehensive Membrane Science and Engineering" to their offering.

This multivolume work covers all aspects of membrane science and technology--from basic phenomena to the most advanced applications and future perspectives. Modern membrane engineering is critical to the development of process-intensification strategies and to the stimulation of industrial growth. The work presents researchers and industrial managers with an indispensable tool toward achieving these aims.

- Covers membrane science theory and economics, as well as applications ranging from chemical purification and natural gas enrichment to potable water

- Includes contributions and case studies from internationally recognized experts and from up-and-coming researchers working in this multi-billion dollar field

- Takes a unique, multidisciplinary approach that stimulates research in hybrid technologies for current (and future) life-saving applications (artificial organs, drug delivery)

Key Topics Covered:

Book 1: Basic aspects of membrane preparation and their transport phenomena - Role and function of biological membranes - Role and function of artificial and synthetic membranes - Fundamentals for transport phenomena in membrane - Basic aspects for polymeric and inorganic membrane preparation - Membrane characterization

Book 2: Membrane operations in molecular separations - Reverse osmosis: fundamentals, membrane materials and structure, transport mechanism, applications - Nanofiltration: fundamentals and driving forces, membrane materials and structure,transport mechanism, applications - Ultrafiltration: fundamentals, membrane materials and structure, transport mechanism, applications - Microfiltration: fundamentals, membrane materials and structure, transport mechanism, applications - Gas separation: fundamentals, membrane materials and structure, transport mechanism, applications - Pervaporation: fundamentals, membrane materials and structure, transport mechanism, applications - Dialysis: fundamentals, membrane materials and structure, transport mechanism, applications - Electrodialysis: fundamentals, membrane materials and structure, transport mechanism, applications

Book 3: Catalytic membranes and catalytic membrane reactors (CMRs) - The principles of coupling a separation process with a catalytic reaction - Catalytic membranes: polymeric, inorganic and hybrid (materials and methods to heterogenize/confine a catalyst by membrane technology) - Biocatalytic membrane reactors and submerged membrane bioreactors (MBRs) - Pervaporation membrane reactors - Membranes and membrane reactors in artificial organs - Modelling of catalytic membranes and CMRs - Main industrial applications of CMRs (oxidation, dehydrogenation, hydrogenation reactions, etc.)

Book 4: Membrane contactors and integrated membrane operations - Basic principles of membrane contactors - Membrane strippers/scrubbers and membrane extractors - Supported liquid membranes - Membrane distillation - Osmotic distillation - Membrane crystallizers - Membrane emulsifiers - Phase transfer catalysis - Membrane materials and structures for membrane contactors - Modules for membrane contactors applications - Integrated membrane operations in various industrial sectors - Case studies
