A, BOOK R E V I E W S Synthetic Polymer Membranes. A Structural Perspective. 2nd edition. By R . E. Kesting. Wiley, Chichester 1985. xi, 348 pp., bound, E 55.75.--ISBN 0-471-80717-6 This book provides an extensive survey of the application of synthetic membranzs for separation processes in the chapters on Membrane Separation Processes (Chapter 2) and Miscellaneous Uses of Membranes (Chapter 3). The properties and solubility behavior of membrane specific polymers as well as the preparation and properties of various synthetic membranes are dealt with in chapters on Membrane Polymers (Chapter 4), Polymer Solutions (Chapter 5), Dense Membranes (Chapter 6 ) , Phase Inversion Membranes (Chapter 7), Other Porous Membranes (Chapter 8), and Liquid and Dynamically Formed Membranes (Chapter 9). The final chapter 10 on Biological Membranes supplies a condensed overview of the structure and function of biological membranes. The author is an internationally recognized expert in the field of synthetic membranes who has been concerned with the design and production of synthetic membranes for more than 20 years. His great experiences in this field are reflected, in particular, in Chapters 4, 6 , and 7, which are really worth reading. However, the vivid and interesting description of knowledge on synthetic membranes cannot obscure the fact that the treatment of the physico-chemical foundations of transport across membranes, of equilibria at solution/ membrane interfaces, of the solubility of polymers, and of Rra,<rcrcd ,mine(. rrademorh r 0 VCH \'erl.tp,ge\cll\ch,lft PIC uced I,) rhis p u n m l . even i$ rrhuu! the water structure in membranes suffer from at least a one-sided view and from inaccuracies in some respects. Thus, the attempt at a purely kinetic explanation of the osmotic pressure fails (p. 24). A clear theoretical background is lacking with the presentation of electrochemical membrane processes. As a consequence of this, individual processes are treated independently without clearly elaborating the interrelations. As a result, an analytical relationship is given only for the diffusion potential whereas the streaming potential is discussed only qualitatively. Furthermore, a theoretical treatment of desalination is presented in the paragraph on hyperfiltration (pp. 64-78) which is essentially unaccepted till today. This biased presentation, which unfortunately extends throughout the whole book and also prevents a systematic classification of synthetic membranes according to their formation, results in a not really scientific and clear presentation of the membrane field. Despite the shortcomings mentioned, the book is a valuable extension of the literature on membranes since the author is at least familiar with, and quotes, the pubtished literature from the beginning of membrane research which was mainly published in German. Consequently it should be available in every library aiming at a reasonably complete coverage of the literature on membranes.
