Various Techniques for Preparation of Thin‐Film Composite Mixed‐Matrix Membranes for Carbondioxide Separation


The application of thin‐film composite mixed‐matrix membranes (TFC‐MMMs) for gas separation is widely considered as an efficient separation technology. The principal methods for the preparation of TFC‐MMMs are dip‐coating, phase inversion, and interfacial polymerization comprising different types of support layers. These methods influence the CO2 permeation over the selective and support layers. A comprehensive review is provided for capturing new details of progress achieved in developing TFC‐MMMs with detailed performance of gas separation in the previous few years. Various preparation techniques of TFC‐MMMs and their effect on the gas separation performance of the prepared membranes are described.
