This work examines the subject of diffusion in polymers from a unified, hands-on point of view. The author describes important recent discoveries in membrane separation processes, and details related research on polymer sorption and diffusion, structure-property relationships for penetrant transport, and case studies with poly(ethylene terephthalate). This work yields a new understanding of small molecule transport processes, non-equilibrium molecular characterization of glassy polymers, carrier-supported enzymes and whole cells, biosensors, and bioreactor analysis and design. The first eight chapters address the core principles of diffusion in polymers and their application to membrane separations. The last three chapters extend these principles to practical applications in the field of bioprocesses. An internationally recognized expert, the author has won a DuPont Invention Award, and the Visiting Scientists Award of Japan. He is currently Distinguished Professor of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering at Rutgers University.show more
