Research in their group centers on two topics. The membrane work centers on distillation with highly permeable, non-selective hollow fibers. These fibers provide a huge area for mass transfer without the normal constraints of loading and flooding. Because of this, the height of a transfer unit can be small, less than 1 mm. In addition, an existing column retrofitted with these fibers will have over ten times greater capacity for separating, for example, propylene and propane.
The second topic, the antithesis of the first, involves membranes which are non-selectively impermeable rather than selectively permeable. These barrier membranes find applications in containing chlorinated compounds in landfills and in shielding oxygen from food. The greatest emphasis is on coatings with aligned inorganic flakes, which dramatically retard corrosion of aircraft. All this work falls under the scope of thin films.
