Dataset for ''High Flux Thin-Film Nanocomposites with Embedded Boron Nitride Nanotubes for Nanofiltration''

This dataset relates to the nanocomposite membranes discussed in the paper "High Flux Thin-Film Nanocomposites with Embedded Boron Nitride Nanotubes for Nanofiltration". It contains the raw data for the membranes' surface zeta potential, salts rejection, permeance, chlorine resistance, contact angle, fouling tests, humic acid rejection, and methylene blue rejection, as well as X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) data. In addition, this data contains transmission electron microscopy (TEM), field-emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM) and optical microscopy data supporting and supplemental to those presented in the paper. Viewing of the paper is necessary for a full understanding of the dataset.
