This paper describes a new method for separating and concentrating bromine from dilute aqueous solutions. The separation is unusually fast because it uses microporous hollow fibers to provide a large surface area per volume. The unusual aspect of the hollow fibers is that their pores are filled with air, so that the separation essentially occurs across a gas membrane. A description is given of how this process actually functioned.
