Nanocomposite membrane comprising of both organic and inorganic material qualities have become a prime focus for the next generation membranes. Nanocomposite may consist of hard permeable or impermeable inorganic particles, such as zeolites, carbon molecular sieves and, silica and carbon nanotubes, metal oxide blended with continuous polymeric matrix presents an attractive approach for improving the separation properties of polymeric membranes. In this review, we have specifcally focused the discussion on metal oxides like MgO, Fe2O3, Fe3O4, and TiO2 along with silver NPs as fller in the formation of Nanocomposite membrane. The eﬀects of these fllers on membrane characteristics, structure and performance using diﬀerent applications have been discussed.
• Nanocomposite fltration membranes
• Inorganic nanoparticles as fller in polymer flms
• Applications of nanocomposite membranes
