In this work, the high-quality ilmenite (FeTiO3) membranes were grown on the clay-Al2O3 support tube from microemulsion-derived FeTiO3 powders by dip-coating method. FeTiO3 powders were synthesized by reverse microemulsion method, using cyclohexane, Tween-80, Brij 30, Triton X-100, and n-butanol at different composition. The membranes as well as powders were finally characterized by removal of red dye from a simulated wastewater of textile industry in same conditions. The membrane separation process demonstrates the removal of dye coupled with permeation of water simultaneously, and the overall process may have great potential for wide industrial application.
