Reverse Osmosis Chemistry College Course Description

Reverse Osmosis Chemistry applies chemical concepts to water and membrane technologies. It relates atomic theory to water contaminants so as to develop a thorough understanding as to why particular contaminants behave the way they do. It includes the means by which those contaminants are measured or characterized. It then applies these principals to reverse osmosis membrane technology in order to recognize how the water characteristics affect the performance of the membrane.
