2]; and t is the collection time for the pervaporation
and perstraction can separate flavor compounds from aqueous-organic solutions, such as a fermentation broth or fruit extracts.
Germany, developed the first commercial pervaporation
membrane for the dehydration of alcohol solutions.
Kondo, M, Komori, M, Kita, H, "Tubular-Type Pervaporation
Module with Zeolite NaA Membrane.
On one front, recovering aromas for fruit juices using pervaporation

membranes are being synthesized as a composite membrane with the top layer being an organosilicone derivative.
Bioethanol (almost absent in the last edition) is covered in the pervaporation
Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) is a rubbery polymer which is used in gas separation and pervaporation
Organic-Inorganic Hybrid Membranes for Removal of Benzene from an Aqueous Solution by Pervaporation
Performance of Methyl Tert Buthyl Ether/Methanol Mixtures through Natural Rubber/Polystyrene Interpenetrating Polymer Network Membranes
Chitosan has been widely investigated for several decades in applications such as controlled drug release, biosensors, biological engineering, catalysts, pervaporation
, packaging materials, and membrane separation [8, 11, 12], However, the mechanical properties of pure chitosan are not good enough to meet the criteria for these applications.
Developments in nanofiltration, gas separations, pervaporation
, and bipolar membrane electrodialysis have widened the applicability of membranes, and have thus encouraged more attention.
