During 2021 we will continue to support students who need to study remotely due to the ongoing impacts of COVID-19 and travel restrictions. Make sure you check the location code when selecting a unit outline or choosing your units of study in Sydney Student. Find out more about what these codes mean. Both remote and on-campus locations have the same learning activities and assessments, however teaching staff may vary. More information about face-to-face teaching and assessment arrangements for each unit will be provided on Canvas.

CHNG5601: Membrane Science

"Membrane Science" provides background in the physics and electrochemistry of a variety of synthetic membranes used in industry as well as cellular membranes. The course aims to develop students' understanding of: - membrane self-assembly and manufacture; - membrane separation processes such as filtration, desalination, ion exchange and water-splitting; - and techniques for membrane characterisation and monitoring.

At the completion of this unit, you should be able to:

  • LO1. understand and interpret the physico-chemical basis of new developments in membrane technology for industrial and biomedical purposes
  • LO2. monitor membrane processes in context and evaluate membrane functionality
  • LO3. demonstrate knowledge of the physical and physico-chemical basis of membrane processes
  • LO4. use quantitative descriptions of ionic transport in synthetic membranes
  • LO5. categorise assembly processes in the manufacturing processes of synthetic membranes.

Unit outlines

Unit outlines will be available 2 weeks before the first day of teaching for the relevant session.
