As a result of the convective flow of solutes through porous membranes, membrane chromatography has a higher capture efficiency and a higher productivity than column chromatography and shows most promising industrial applications for the recovery, isolation, and purification of proteins and enzymes. This paper presents a comprehensive review of the methods for preparation of adsorptive membranes (such as surface modification, in situ copolymerization, direct formation from hydrophilic materials, and functionalized particulate-entrapped membranes) and deals particularly with novel macroporous chitin and chitosan membranes for protein separations developed by the authors.
