Abstract :
Positron annihilation spectroscopy (PAS) coupled with a slow positron beam has been used to study the freevolume depth profile (0–10 μm) in polymeric membrane systems prepared by the interfacial polymerization method. Doppler broadening energy parameters of annihilation radiation vary as a function of the depth from the surface through multi-layers in polyamide asymmetric membranes prepared under different experimental parameters, such as the time, the temperature, and pH of membrane preparation process of interfacial polymerization. Three layer structures including a skin, a transition, and the porous layers in those asymmetric membrane systems are obtained. Positron annihilation lifetime results provide additional information about free-volume size and distribution in nano- and micro-scale film membrane systems. PAS results are correlated with the pervaporation separation, flux and water wt% in permeate of 70% isopropanol aqueous solution and compared with the SEM images.
