Here we present a study of 2-propanol-water pervaporation through polyamide/polyelectrolyte multilayer composite membranes. The effect of different polyelectrolyte pairs on the pervaporation performance was investigated. Poly(acrylic acid) and poly(styrene sulfonic acid) were used as polyanionic components and poly(ethyleneimine) and poly(diallyldimethylammoniumchloride) were used as polycations.
