AbstractA novel method of surface modification by grafting hydrophilic poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) chains onto the surface of a thin-film composite (TFC) polyamide reverse osmosis (RO) membrane was performed. Aminopolyethylene glycol monomethylether (MPEG-NH2) was used as grafting monomer. The membranes were characterized by attenuated total reflectance Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (ATR-FTIR), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and atomic force microscopy (AFM). The changes in chemical composition and morphology of the membranes' surface indicated the successful grafting process. Furthermore, a preliminary experiment confirmed that the grafting of PEG chains improved membrane antifouling property. © 2007 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
