- ... This review summarizes the recent studies on membrane fouling and the process of surface modification to develop fouling resistant membranes in microfiltration (MF), ultrafiltration (UF), and nanofiltration (NF) processes. Predominantly membrane properties such as hydrophilicity, surface charge, and roughness have an essential role in membrane fouling and flux decline. Surface modification techniq ...
