Abstract: Since extracorporeal membrane oxygenator (ECMO) has been utilized to save countless lives by providing continuous extracorporeal breathing and circulation to patients with severe cardiopulmonary failure. In particular, it has played an important role during the COVID-19 epidemic. One of the important composites of ECMO is membrane oxygenator, and the core composite of the membrane oxygenator is hollow fiber membrane, which is not only a place for blood oxygenation, but also is a barrier between the blood and gas side. However, the formation of blood clots in the oxygenator is a key problem in the using process. According to the study of the mechanism of thrombosis generation, it was found that improving the hemocompatibility is an efficient approach to reduce thrombus formation by modifying the surface of materials. In this review, the corresponding modification methods (surface property regulation, anticoagulant grafting, and bio-interface design) of hollow fiber membranes in ECMO are classified and discussed, and then, the research status and development prospects are summarized.

Precisely Patterned Nanostrand Surface of Cucurbituril[]-Based Nanofiltration Membranes for Effective Alcohol-Water Condensation.

Nano Lett 2020 04 30;20(4):2717-2723. Epub 2020 Mar 30.

Low concentration alcohols produced by state-of-the-art biological fermentation restrict subsequent purification processes for chemical, pharmaceutical, biofuel, and other applications. Herein, a rarely reported cucurbituril[] ( = 6, 8) is employed to pattern the thin-film composite membranes with controllable and quantifiable nanostrand structures through a host-guest strategy. The resulting nanofiltration membrane with such morphology is the first report that exhibits excellent separation performance for isopropyl alcohol (IPA) and water, condensing the initial 0.5 wt % IPA aqueous solution to 9.0 wt %. This not only provides a novel strategy for patterning nanostructural morphology but also makes nanofiltration membranes promising for alcohol condensation in the biological fermentation industry that may reduce energy consumption and postprocessing costs.

Soluble, microporous, Tröger's Base copolyimides with tunable membrane performance for gas separation.

Chem Commun (Camb) 2016 Mar;52(19):3817-20

Department of Energy Engineering, College of Engineering, Hanyang University, Seoul 04763, Republic of Korea.

A facile two-step synthesis beginning with commercial monomers to prepare copolyimides by Tröger's Base (TB) formation provides membranes for the first time with tunable gas transport relative to hydrogen separations, CO2 plasticization resistance, and good mechanical and thermal properties.
