A detailed review of the fabrication technology of microporous composite polymeric membranes has been conducted. We believe that this type of membrane has greater potential than the traditional asymmetric-composite membranes to be used for the development of the third generation of gas-separation membranes. However, there are four major challenges when preparing a high-performance microporous composite membrane:namely, eliminating pore intrusion, reducing coating thickness, improving interfacial adhesion and enhancing separation performance. In this article, we review and identify those approaches that have overcome or can potentially overcome these difficulties.
