These characteristics allow further fine-tuning of membrane morphology as well as separation performance optimization. In addition to high temperature resistance, thermosetting polymers neither liquefy nor soften at any stage of pyrolysis [1]. Also, suitable precursor materials for carbon membrane preparation will not cause any pin-holes or cracks to appear after the pyrolysis step [2]. Another important reason why polymer precursors are preferred is that the resulting membranes are invariably prepared with fewer impurities than those derived from activated carbon precursor [3].

Because of its simple molecular structure and formation mechanism, it is an appropriate material for fundamental experimental and atomistic simulation studies. Hence, Acharya [51] chose PFA based on the knowledge that PFA derived carbon could have desirable properties such as narrow pore size distribution and chemical stability. However, PFA did not appear to have the best mechanical and elastic properties required for forming a thin film on a rigid support [51]. Since PFA is in liquid state at room temperature, it can be used in supported film only.

6€Š(helium). The activation energy seems to increase as the molecular size increases. Both are the typical features of the sieve mechanism. 2. Sedigh et€al. [44] dip-coated a PEI film inside a ceramic tube and then carbonized it at 600°C under flowing argon for 4€h. The authors investigated the transport characteristics of their PEI carbon membranes using single gas (CH4, H2, CO2), binary gas mixtures (CO2/CH4, H2/CH4, CO2/H2) and also ternary mixtures of CO2/ H2/CH4. CO2/CH4 separation factors as high as 145 for the equi-molar binary and 155 for the ternary mixture were obtained with this PEI-based CMSM.
