Abstract

The paper describes comparative studies on S-layer ultrafiltration membranes (SUM) and commercial ultrafiltration membranes. In S-layer ultrafiltration membranes (SUM) the permselective layer consists of coherent S-layer fragments, in which protein- or glycoprotein molecules are arranged according to a crystalline lattice (Sára and Sleytr 1987). By contrast, the permselective skin in commercial ultrafiltration membranes showing a thickness of 0.1 urn or less and an amorphous structure, is prepared of polymers as regenerated cellulose, cellulose acetate or polysulfone (Strathmann 1981).
