Ultra-thin metal coatings on polymer membranes

Ultra-thin metal coatings on polymer membranes for micro- and ultra-filtration result in defined conductivity while multiplying the function of new membranes. The metal coating made of gold, titanium or other metals permits specific adjustment of a zeta potential of a membrane surface. The membrane surfaces can also be charged with defined voltages. Switchable adsorption and desorption of active substances or a defined decrease in fouling can be realized during the filtration process.
