ABSTRACT: Membrane technology has emerged as an important separation process for H2 purification, CO2 capture, and water purification. Conventional membrane material designs are often focused on rigid polymers with strong size sieving ability to enhance diffusivity selectivity. In contrast, our research focuses on the exploration of specific interactions between the penetrant and membrane materials to achieve high solubility selectivity and thus high separation performance.
