Ion Exchange Resin Membranes and Resin-Impregnated Filter Paper


MARSHALL1 has prepared zeolite membranes and has used them, as electrodes for the determination of ionic activities in solution in a manner analogous to the use of the glass electrode for the measurement of hydrogen ion activities. It is a logical step to attempt to use ion exchange resins in the form of membranes for similar purposes. However, the difficulties of preparing these are considerable.
