A U.S. Patent for “Anti-Fouling Chiral Surfaces for Membrane Filtration and Methods Therefor” was awarded to the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute on January 14th, 2020. The present invention relates to, inter alia, a modified surface comprising an optically active monomer, a polymeric material having a surface onto which the optically active monomer is covalently bound. In one aspect, a membrane comprising an optically active monomer, a poly(aryl sulfone) membrane having a surface onto which the optically active monomer is covalently bound. The present disclosure also relates to a method of modifying a surface… Learn More
