Abstract

Pluronic F127 (PF127-) and PF127/bentonite-blended PVC ultrafiltration membranes are prepared in salt coagulation baths involving NaCl, KCl, NH4Cl, MgCl2 and CaCl2. Saturated KCl-coagulation bath delivers super-hydrophilic membrane with improved surface-porosity (10.64 %), pore density (49.26 μm−2), roughness (51.12 nm) and hydrophilicity (contact angle
