Achintya Kumar Sen Gupta: Process for refining crude glyceride oils by membrane filtration. Lever Brothers Company, Melvin H Kurtz, December 13, 1977: US04062882 (85 worldwide citation)

Crude glyceride oils are refined by membrane filtration under pressure in solutions in organic solvents, particularly to separate phosphatides, which may also be refined according to the invention. The solvents are non-acidic, non-hydroxy solvents, e.g., esters, hydrocarbons and halogenated hydrocar ...
