A high reagent uptake of 99.7% [+ or -] 2.9% could be retained after hot-press at 130[degrees]C in double layers, whereas it was difficult for diethyl carbonate to be absorbed into the PVDF membranes after they were treated above 145[degrees]C, because the pore of the fibrous membranes was shut off partially by hot-press at high temperatures.
