2 Nanocomposite membranes (nano-enhanced membranes) In another approach to membrane development processes, researchers focused on incorporating inorganic nanoparticles into polymeric materials, which resulted in the formation of nanocomposite (nano-enhanced) membranes with improved mechanical and physicochemical properties. Various nanomaterials have been employed as filler, such as carbon nanotubes (CNTs), nanoclay, nanosilver, and nanosized TiO2, ZnO, Al2O3, Fe3O4, SiO2, and ZrO2. More details about developments in nanocomposite membranes and their performance in water treatment are presented in the following sections.
