Effect of carboxylic acid crosslinking of cellulose membranes on nanofiltration performance in ethanol and dimethylsulfoxide

2019-10-01
Cellulose membranes were fabricated via phase inversion using 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium acetate as solvent and acetone as volatile cosolvent. 1,2,3,4-butanetetracarboxylic acid was used to partially crosslink the hydroxyl groups of cellulose, thereby changing mechanical properties of the membranes and the interactions with solvents, ethanol and dimethyl sulfoxide, and solutes. Rejection of dyes of similar size, Bromothymol Blue, Rose Bengal and Crystal Violet were shown to correlate inversely with sorption in the membranes, with the higher the sorption coefficient, the lower the rejection observed. This shows that the solute-membrane affinity is the determining factor in solute rejection in cellulose membranes. Upon crosslinking, the rejection of positively charged Crystal Violet decreased, that of negatively charged Rose Bengal increased and 93% rejection of Rose Bengal in DMSO was obtained with the crosslinked membrane. This change upon crosslinking was attributed to altered electrostatic interactions between the dyes and the membrane surface, as free carboxylic acid groups of the crosslinker leaves the membrane with a net the negative charge. Overall, it was shown that cellulose membranes can perform stably in a harsh aprotic solvent and that the rejection, which is determined by membrane-solute affinity can be tuned with carboxylic acid crosslinking.

Sukma, F. M.; Çulfaz Emecen, Pınar Zeynep (2018-01-01)
Cellulose membranes were fabricated by phase inversion from solutions of cellulose in 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium acetate ([EMIM] OAc) as solvent and acetone as volatile cosolvent. The rejection of Bromothymol Blue ( 624 Da) in ethanol increased and the permeance decreased by increasing the cellulose concentration in the solution prior to coagulation, either by having more cellulose in the starting solution or by evaporating the volatile cosolvent. Drying the membranes after coagulation further increased th...
Effect of silver encapsulation on the local structure of titanosilicate ETS-10
GALIOGLU, Sezin; ZAHMAKIRAN, Mehmet; Kalay, Yunus Eren; Özkar, Saim; Akata, Burcu (2012-09-01)
Silver(0) nanoparticles stabilized by titanosilicate (ETS-10) framework were synthesized by following a simple two step procedure involving the incorporation of silver(I) (Ag+) ions into ETS-10 matrix via ion-exchange with extra framework Na+ and K+ cations followed by their reduction with sodium borohydride (NaBH4) in aqueous medium all at room temperature. Silver(0) nanoparticles dispersed in the ETS-10 matrix were collected as gray powders and characterized by using advanced analytical methods including ...
Effect of Polymers on the Rheological Properties of KCl Polymer Type Drilling Fluid
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (2005-05-01)
In the course of this research, the effect of two polymers (xanthan gum and polyanionic cellulose) on the rheological properties of KCl/polymer type drilling fluids was investigated. Non-Newtonian drilling fluids are conventionally characterized by rheological models (Bingham Plastic, Power Law, Casson, Herchel-Bulkley and Robertson-Stiff). In this research, forty-five KCl/polymer data sets of varying compositions are prepared. Polymer addition to the system has affected the model and caused a variation of ...

Effect of Alkyl Derivatization on Several Properties of N-Halamine Antimicrobial Siloxane Coatings
Kocer, Hasan B.; Akdağ, Akın; Ren, Xuehong; Broughton, R. M.; Worley, S. D.; Huang, T. S. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2008-10-01)
Variation of alkyl substitution at position 5 on the hydantoin ring of a series of N-halamine siloxane derivatives has been employed to better understand the biocidal activities of these compounds for use in preparing antimicrobial coatings. The alkyl derivatization of the hydantoin ring at its 5 position, while an essentially constant chlorine loading is maintained at the I position, has shown that there is little dependence of the antimicrobial efficacy against Escherichia coli O157:H7 on the alkyl chain ...
