The optimization of polyelectrolyte multilayer membranes to remove micro-pollutants from water. Many small polluting molecules such as plasticizers, pesticides and medicines are not removed during water treatment and end up in surface water or even drinking water. Goal of this research project is achieving removal of such molecules in an economically viable fashion.
