Dynamically formed hydrous zirconium (IV) oxide-polyelectroyte membranes. IV. Maleic anhydride copolymers
A series of maleic anhydride copolymers were synthesised. The copolymers were used as polyelectrolytes in dynamically formed hydrous zirconium (IV) oxide-polyelectrolyte membranes. All the copolymers formed dynamic membranes. Two of the copolymer membranes showed salt rejections similar to that of commercially used poly(acrylic acid) dynamic membranes.
