Frontispiece: Tunable Wettability of Electrospun Polyurethane/Silica Composite Membranes for Effective Separation of Water-in-Oil and Oil-in-Water Emulsions

Frontispiece: Tunable Wettability of Electrospun Polyurethane/Silica Composite Membranes for Effective Separation of Water-in-Oil and Oil-in-Water Emulsions
Libin Liu, Gailan Guo, Wenyuan Fang
A composite membrane consisting of hyperbranched polyurethane (HBPU) and fluorine-modified silica (F-SiO2) with tunable wettability was fabricated by electrospinning. The HBPU/F-SiO2 composite membranes can be transformed from superhydrophobicity to superhydrophilicity by plasma treatment. The frontispiece picture illustrates how the composite membrane exhibits different wettability for effective separation of surfactant-stabilized water-in-oil and oil-in-water emulsions. For the complete story see the Full paper by L. Liu et al. on page 11253 ff.
