This item is likely to change significantly with time. Current research includes: membrane-based sorbent for ultra-high capacity metal sorption,  biofunctional membranes, protein fouling of RO and NF membranes, pervaporation of organics, organic-membrane interactions, and site-directed membrane immobilized enzymes. Dr. Bhattacharyya's graduate student research group have also done extensive work in the area of Reverse Osmosis/Nanofiltration and novel processes for wastewater treatment/destruction. Here are some thoughts on membrane process selection procedure for material separations. View our pilot scale, continuous flow, RO/NF unit

Questions and comments concerning membrane and environmental research or this lab should be directed to Dr. D. Bhattacharyya.
