5 Zinc oxide nanoparticles Another applicable nanoparticle used in modifying membranes is nano-zinc oxide (ZnO). , 2012; Hong & He, 2012). Moreover, ZnO nanoparticles are more economical than some other nanoparticles such as TiO2 and Al2O3 nanoparticles. , 2012). , 2012). Balta et al. 750, 1, 2, and 4 wt%). The ZnO-blended membranes showed a lower decline in flux and better permeability compared with pristine membrane owing to the significantly higher hydrophilicity of nanocomposite membranes even at ultra-low concentrations of ZnO nanoparticles.

2013) and Daraei, Madaeni, Ghaemi, Khadivi, et al. (2013) studied the effects of blending polymer-modified MWCNTs and PES membranes and compared the results with acid-functionalized MWCNTs. They modified acid functionalized MWCNTs using three hydrophilic polymers through an in situ polymerization reaction. , 2013). The CNT-mixed membranes were fabricated using the phase inversion precipitation method. Although this treatment process caused a higher pure water flux with unchanged protein retention by adding a constant amount of PAA and PAAm-modified MWCNT into the membrane matrix, the best antifouling performance was shown by the membrane containing PCA-modified MWCNT.

Extensive efforts have been implemented to improve both flux and selectivity and reduce membrane fouling as the most important problem in application of membranes. To eliminate obstacles and decrease the problems in membrane use, much research and numerous studies have been conducted to develop new materials and methods for fabricating and modifying polymeric membranes. This chapter covers the most recent and applicable achievements regarding the preparation, modification, and performance of polymeric membranes for water treatment.
