Main Article Content
High-performance polymeric membrane technology is rapidly developing worldwide with the introduction of new materials and processes. Considerable research efforts are being made to establish a polymer membrane that can be used for ultrafiltration (UF) or nanofiltration (NF) applications. The development of modified polyamide-66 polymer and its compatibility in wastewater are essential elements in the quest for advances and improvements in membrane technology. The optimized conditions for membrane synthesis are critical in making it commercially viable. Response Surface Methodology (RSM) was used to find the optimum dissolution of polyamide-66 in formic acid. A model was developed and validated with experimental data, and it showed good agreement with R2 0.9984. The optimized condition for minimizing viscosity was determined. For minimum viscosity (3.64 cp), the optimum temperature and wt.% were 20 °C and 0.6, respectively.
