Abstract
In this study, the anti-fouling ability of coating ultrafiltration (UF) and reverse-osmosis (RO) membranes with a block copolymer of polystyrene (PS) bound to an alternating lysine–glutamic acid peptide PS-b-(KE)15) was analyzed. The PS-b-(KE)15 coating had no effect on membrane permeability. Membrane fouling experiments were conducted with extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) extracted from the biological sludge of a membrane bioreactor,...
