R. Das

In this chapter, a summary of different synthetic polymers-based water/gas separation techniques is given. It includes the separation of solutes from wastewater and also the purification of gases from various cocktails. Moreover, a summary of individual chapters of this book entitled ‘Polymeric Membranes for Water Purification and Gas Separation’ is shown in the conclusion section.
