In this regard, facilitated transport membranes can be proposed as promising solution to overcome the upperbound constraint due to their high permselectivity [13, 18].

Although in facilitated transport membrane, the error in thickness measurement is more much oblivious than other type of membrane due to gel penetration into support pores and Solvent loss, the separation results presented in permeance to omit the error of thickness measurements.
