Title (EN) BIOMIMETIC MEMBRANES AND USES THEREOF
(FR) MEMBRANES BIOMÉTRIQUES ET LEURS UTILISATIONS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A liquid membrane system is disclosed in the form of a biochannel containing bulk liquid membrane (BLM), biochannel containing emulsion liquid membrane (ELM), and biochannel containing supported (immobilised) liquid membrane (SLM), or a combination thereof, wherein said liquid membrane system is based on vesicles formed from amphiphilic compounds such as lipids forming a bilayer wherein biochannels have been incorporated and wherein said vesicles further contain a stabilising oil phase. The uses of the membrane system include water extraction from liquid aqueous media by forward osmosis, e.g. for desalination of salt water.
(FR)L'invention porte sur un système membranaire liquide sous la forme d'une membrane liquide volumique (BLM) contenant des biocanaux, d'une membrane liquide en émulsion (ELM) contenant des biocanaux et d'une membrane liquide supportée (immobilisée) (SLM) contenant des biocanaux, ou d'une association de celles-ci, ledit système membranaire liquide étant à base de vésicules formées à partir de composés amphiphiles tels que des lipides formant une bicouche, des biocanaux ayant été incorporés et lesdites vésicules contenant en outre une phase huileuse de stabilisation. Les utilisations du système membranaire comprennent l'extraction d'eau à partir de milieux aqueux liquides par osmose directe, c'est-à-dire pour le dessalement d'eau salée.
