Okan M Ekiner, Richard A Hayes, Phillip Manos: Novel multicomponent fluid separation membranes. E I du Pont de Nemours and Company, February 4, 1992: US05085676 (124 worldwide citation)

A process for preparing multicomponent gas separation membranes is disclosed. The process involves casting two or more solutions of polymer, and partially removing solvent from the side of the cast polymer that is to form the gas separation layer of the membrane. The membrane is then quenched to fre ...
