Abstract

Small angle neutron scattering investigation of polymer membranes has been performed in temperature range from 30 C to 70 C. The membrane was based on cellulose and penetrated with polyacrilic acid chains.. The results confirm the high thermal stability of membranes that structure is not changed in this temperature interval. Two characteristic scales of pores in membranes were found : large inhomogenieties with the size of ∼30 nm and small cavities having dimension of ∼2 nm being responsible for high separation characteristics of this molecular sieve.
