Title: Preparation and Characterization of Low Cost Ceramic and Silver-Ceramic Composite Membranes for Bacteria Filtration Applications
 
Thesis Supervisor: Prof. R. Uppaluri
 
Abstract:
 
The Ph.D. thesis focussed upon the fabrication engineering and application aspects of low cost ceramic and silver-ceramic composite membranes. The research work was carried out primarily in five areas of research namely:
  1. Preparation and characterization of low cost ceramic membranes.
  2. Dead end microfiltration of synthetic bacterial solutions using low cost ceramic membranes.
  3. Cross flow microfiltration of synthetic bacterial solutions using low cost ceramic membranes.
  4. Rate enhanced electroless fabrication of silver-ceramic composite membranes and optimality of processes and process parameters.
  5. Microfiltration of synthetic bacterial solutions using silver-ceramic composite membranes fabricated with optimal electroless plating process and process parameters.
