Surface modification of phenolphthalein poly(ether sulfone) ultrafiltration membranes by blending with acrylonitrile-based copolymer containing ionic groups for imparting surface electrical properties.

Asymmetric ultrafiltration membranes were fabricated from the blends of phenolphthalein polyethersulfone (PES-C) and acrylonitrile copolymers containing charged groups, poly(acrylonitrile-co-acrylamido methylpropane sulfonic acid) (PAN-co-AMPS). From the surface analysis by XPS and ATR-FTIR, it was found that the charged groups tend to accumulate onto the membrane surface. This result indicated that membrane surface modification for imparting surface electrical properties could be carried out by blending charged polymer. Furthermore, with the help of a relatively novel method to measure membrane conduction, the true zeta potentials calculated on the basis of the streaming potential measurements were used to reflect the charge state of membrane surface. In addition, it was noteworthy that, from the profiles of zeta potential versus pH curves and the magnitude of zeta potentials, the determination of zeta potential was dependent not only on the electrical properties of membrane surface but also on its hydrophilicity. At last, based on a relatively elaborate study on the electrostatic interaction between the membrane surface and protein, it was found that these charged membranes could meet different demands of membrane applications, such as resisting protein fouling or protein separation, through adjusting solution pH value.[1]
