dc.description.abstractConjugated polyaniline can impact the field of water filtration membranes due to its hydrophilic and antibacterial nature, facile and inexpensive synthesis procedure, heat and acid tolerance, and unique doping/dedoping chemistry. However, the gelation effect, its rigid backbone, and the limited hydrophilicity of polyaniline severely restrict the adaptability to membranes and their antifouling performance. This Mini Review summarizes important works of polyaniline-related ultrafiltration membranes, highlighting solutions to conquer engineering obstacles in processing and challenges in enhancing surface hydrophilicity with an emphasis on chemistry. As a pH-responsive polymer convertible to a conductive salt, this classic material should continue to bring unconventional advances into the realm of water filtration membranes.
