In this study four kinds of Chitosan membranes were prepared. The permeability of the membranes was then investigated by permeation of K + in these membranes. The performances of the prepared membranes for recovery of chromium (III) from aqueous solution were evaluated. The effects of operation conditions on permeation characteristics were determined, and permeation mechanism was discussed. The stability of the membranes was also studied.
