- 1. Introduction -- 2. Nature of Membranes -- 3. Transport Processes in Membrane Systems -- (Section 3.3.4. Mass transfer in pervaporation and its mathematical description—H. Strathmann and R. M. McDonogh) -- 4. Separation by Membranes -- 5. Design of Membrane Systems -- (Section 5.5. Case Study 1: Ultrafiltration of potable water—P. Aptel and J.-L. Bersillon) (Section 5.6. Case Study 2: Microfiltration of mycelial broth—P. Crocker) -- 6. Fouling Phenomena -- 7. Flux Enhancement -- 8. Electrochemical Aspects of Microfiltration and Ultrafiltration -- 9. The Use of Pervaporation in Biotechnology.
- The book serves as an advanced text on the theory and use of a selection of membrane processes of value in bioprocessing. The applications referred to range from preparing pure water through harvesting of cells and concentration of products to recovery of products such as dry ethanol (by prevaporation).
