Membrane processes are finding wide applications ranging from water treatment to reactors to advanced bio-separations. The attachment of selected types of polyelectrolytes and the in-situ synthesis of nanoparticles in membranes allows highly effective separations at low pressures and toxic organic destruction at room temperature. This paper deals with the role of nano-domain interactions for selective separations, polypeptide assembly in membrane pores for bio and environmental applications, and synthesis of nano-structured metals for toxic organic dechlorination.
