Petroleum-derived solvents have traditionally been used to fabricate polymeric membranes, however, these potentially have negative impacts on the environment and human health. This study focused on replacing petroleum-derived solvents with a bio-derived solvent, Rhodiasolv® PolarClean, to fabricate polysulfone membranes in order to make the process more environmentally friendly. Polysulfone/PolarClean membranes were cast and characterized, and were compared to membranes prepared using petroleum-derived solvents. Results show that PolarClean offers the potential to fabricate polysulfone membranes successfully. View this paper
