Abstract

An aminopropyl-silicate membrane, synthesized from tetramethoxysilane (TMOS) and 3-aminopropyltrimethoxysilane (APTrMOS) by the sol-gel method, was formed onto Ca-alginate gel beads via electrostatic interactions. The permeability of the membrane could be controlled easily by changing the molar ratio of both the precursors ([APTrMOS]/[TMOS]). The aminopropyl-silicate membrane prepared at a molar ratio of 2.40 rejected γ-globulin and BSA successfully, whereas it permeated ovalbumin. This result indicates that the molecular weight cutoff point of this newly developed aminopropyl-silicate membrane is approximately 60 kDa.
