Development of supramolecular nanofiber textile composites for novel, highly efficient filter media for particle removal from gases, aqueous systems and oil

The project focuses on the development of new, innovative and highly efficient filter media for cleaning of gases and liquids. The filter material consists of a textile or paper carrier with integrated supramolecular nanofibers formed in a simple finishing process via self-assembly of low molecular weight building blocks. The nanofibers will significantly reduce the pore size of the carrier allowing a better filtration performance by retaining smallest contaminants in gas and liquid streams.
