PhD defense Sinem Tas

Development of functional membranes that are capable of selectively recognizing and transporting ions have key importance for the recovery and separation of specific ions (e.g. K+, Li+, Na+) from multicomponent mixtures. In this thesis, new membrane materials based on crown ether-metal ion host–guest interactions are developed. ... read more
