Formatted Abstract/Summary
Ceramic membranes have undergone a concerted research development in the past two decades, since their initial development for uranium isotope processing for the nuclear industry in 1940s. The diversity of inorganic materials, such as ceramics, metals, and nonpolymeric carbons, has allowed researchers to build membranes by a number of processes ranging from simple sol-gel dip coating to chemical vapor deposition and complex plasma coatings among many others. This article specifically covers all the major preparation methods currently employed in the preparation of thin-film ceramic membranes derived from silica, zeolites, titania, hierarchical structures, and perovkites.
