Abstract

In the present work, the modified polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) membranes incorporated by oleyl alcohol (OA) were prepared for the first time. The polymeric membranes were characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA), and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) before and after modification. These membranes were used for the pervaporative separation of phenol from wastewater. The effects of OA loading and feed temperature on the pervaporation performances have been investigated. The influence of ignoring the partial pressure at the permeate side was compared and discussed. The results showed that the OA presence increased phenol flux and separation factor, and decreased water flux greatly with less than 9 wt% OA loading. The highest pervaporation separation index was obtained with 5 wt% OA loading. The driving force of phenol across the membranes was much lower than that of water, and permeation of phenol was much higher than water in nature. It is necessary to discuss and compare the intrinsic properties of different membranes using permeation and selectivity, even though the membranes are tested under the same feed temperature and concentration. The partial pressure of phenol at the permeation side cannot be simply omitted for its great effect on the permeation. Increasing feed temperature will result in the increase of flux and separation factor, but decrease of permeation.
