Membranes are a key part of pervaporation processes, which is generally a more
efficient process for selective removal of alcohol from water than distillation. It is
necessary that the membranes have high alcohol permeabilities and selectivities.
Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) based mixed matrix membranes (MMMs) have
demonstrated very promising results. Zeolitic imidazolate framework-71 (ZIF-71)
demonstrated promising alcohol separation abilities. In this dissertation, we present
fundamental studies on the synthesis of ZIF-71/PDMS MMMs.
