Ultrathin membranes of molecularly reinforced liquids on porous substrates

Authors


Abstract

Hairy-rod-like macro-molecules are reported to useful materials in the fabrication of membranes. Cellulose alkylethers, cross-linked through cinnamyl side groups (see Figure), are transferred onto a Celgard 2400 substrate using the Langmuir–Blodgett technique. The preparation and the characteristics of the membranes are presented.
