Hollow Fibers and Nanofibers in Membrane Science

Preparation, Characterization, and Applications

edited by Alberto Figoli, Mir Saeed Seyed Dorraji and Francesco Galiano

“The existence of all living species would be rather impossible without the membrane formed around each cell that enables its functioning by the selective transport. Mankind has already made some progress to mimic nature, and we can hear today that the membranes are widely used in water purification and desalination, blood oxygenation, and dialysis, saving many lives every day. This book gives a broad and professional overview of the most compact type of membranes—the hollow fibers—from their preparation to applications. The last chapter is particularly thrilling as it discusses how hollow fiber membranes and nanofibers can be used in bioartificial organs and tissue engineering.”
