Abstract

During the past 20 years membrane systems have been applied to a limited number of commercial gas separations. To further advance membrane‐based gas separations, current research efforts focus on optimization of (i) membrane materials, (ii) membrane structures and (iii) membrane system design. In this overview, recent developments in the formation of high‐performance gas separation membranes are discussed. The gas separation properties of state‐of‐the‐art integrally skinned asymmetric membranes and thin‐film composite membranes are summarized. Future directions for the preparation of advanced gas separation membranes are highlighted.
