The purpose of this MSc work was to investigate the effects of neodymium/zirconium doping on the phase structure evolution of the selective titania nanofiltration (NF) membrane layers for the rejection of subnano sized organic compounds. A dilatometric study was carried out on unsupported membranes prepared from polymeric sols with different neodymium and zirconium levels. The development of functional abilities towards the design of the pore structure in the subnano range by controlling the nanostructural evolution of the selective NF layers was the fundamental purpose of this work. The neodymium doping level was varied in the 0.3-5.0% range and the zirconium mixing level was varied in the 0-100% range based on stable metal oxide molar compositions. Dilatometric characterization results have shown that dopant level effects the nanophase evolution and the densification behavior considerably. The dynamic light scattering results have shown that the polymeric species in the sol were predominantly 2-4 nm in size and had a very narrow size distribution. XRD analysis results indicated titania anatase crystallite sizes were reduced significantly with neodymium doping or zirconia mixing and the phase transformations were retarded by about 200°C. HR-TEM images of selected zirconia mixed or neodymium doped unsupported membrane powders also added new information to the XRD/dilatometry derived nanophase evolution results. The determination of the molecular weight cut-off values and pure water fluxes of the NF membranes which would be prepared by using these polymeric sols in the near future may generate valuable knowledge on the subnano separation abilities of these NF membranes.
