Abstract

Different approaches of grafting poly (ethylene glycol) (PEG) chains to commercially available cellulose acetate Ultrafiltration membrane were considered and compared with respect to permeate flux and fouling prevention. Grafting was attained by forming a reactive radical on the membrane surface by oxidation and attaching PEG chains. Grafting chain length and density were controlled by using a chain transfer agent.
