Abstract: In this paper, one of the grand challenges to sustain the modern society is to secure adequate water resources of desirable quality for various designated uses. To address this challenge, membrane water treatment is expected to play an increasingly important role in areas such as drinking water treatment, brackish and seawater desalination, and wastewater treatment and reuse. Nanocomposite solvent resistant (NCSR) membranes were developed and utilized for separation of organic biodiesel rich phase. The modified membranes were fabricated via non solvent induced phase separation by addition of different concentrations of functionalized multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) in the polyimide (PI) casting solution.
