Given his experience, Dr. Genduso’s research embraces a broad spectrum of topics of both the material and process engineering. In particular, he investigates:
- Fundamental mechanisms that govern the selective transport of fluid mixtures in polymer and inorganic films — both from a sorption and diffusion point of view, and both experimentally and by model description.
- Structure-properties relationships for best selection/development of membrane materials for industrial fluid separations.
- Energy-intensive gas-gas and liquid-liquid separations via membrane technology (e.g., CO2-CH4, olefin-paraffin, organic-organic separations).
- Advanced desalination technologies for high-salinity sea and wastewaters.
