A study on the synthesis and evaluation of organic/inorganic composite membranes for the selective removal of VOC from air streams was carried out. Using mesoporous alumina membranes as supports, various triazine-based dendritic molecules were grown in a covalent manner from the porous surfaces to create the nanocomposites. The organic portion of the composite might be varied by increasing the number of generations of the dendrimer grown on the surface, by varying the length and functionality of the dendrimer terminating groups, and by using different spacer groups between triazine branches. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the AIChE Annual Meeting and Fall Showcase (Cincinnati, OH 10/30/2005-11/4/2005).
