Supported photocatalytic poly(tetrafluoroethylene) (PTFE)/ZnO porous membranes were prepared by sintering electrospun PTFE/poly(vinylalcohol)/zinc acetate dehydrate composite membranes. Electrospun PTFE membranes were utilized as supports with excellent chemical stability and high specific surface area, while the photocatalyst‐ZnO particles derived from the thermal decomposition of zinc acetate dehydrate were homogeneously immobilized on the surface of ultrafine PTFE fibers. The PTFE/ZnO membranes could be easily recovered and reused after water treatment. PTFE/ZnO membranes are expected to have a wide range of potential applications in photocatalysis and photocatalysis‐membrane reactors, playing the role of a catalyst as well as a selective barrier against contaminants of interest.
