Supported Liquid Membranes

This research line entails the development of liquid supported membranes by impregnating novel solvents (such as deep eutectic solvents) into porous inorganic/organic supports. This combination allows increasing the selectivity of the membranes while reducing the energy required for the regeneration of the solvent. Typical examples of the application of such membranes are the recovery of CO2 from flue gases or the recovery of products from sugars conversion (such as HMF, furfural etc.).
