Many micropollutants are known to permeate reverse osmosis (RO) membranes and pose problems, e.g., organic pollutants found in secondary wastewater, or boron in seawater desalination. This paper demonstrates an approach to improving the rejection of various micropollutants in commercial RO membrane elements via in situ modification. A coating procedure based on surface-directed polymerization yielded a consistent improvement in the rejection of various organic and inorganic pollutants. This offers a facile way to tune membrane performance in working installations, in particular when the removal of both salt and micropollutants is a major concern. View this paper
