Magnetophoretic dispersion of magnetic fillers has been proven to improve gas separation performances of mixed matrix membrane (MMM). However, the magnetic field induced is usually in a horizontal or vertical direction during membrane casting. Limited study has been conducted on the effects of rotational magnetic field direction towards dispersion of particles. Thus, this work focuses on the rearrangement of paramagnetic iron oxide-titanium dioxide (αFe2O3-TiO2) nanocomposite in poly (2,6-dimethyl-1,4-phenylene oxide) (PPOdm) membrane via rotational magnetic field to investigate the dispersion of filler and effects towards its overall gas separation performance. The paramagnetic fillers were incorporated into polymer via dry phase inversion method at different weight loading. MMM with 3 wt% loading shows the best performance in terms of particle dispersion and gas separation performance. It shows the greatest relative particles count and least agglomerates via OLYMPUS™ Stream software with image taken by optical microscope. Relative to pristine membrane, it displays a permeability and selectivity increment of 312% and 71%. MMM with 3 wt% loading was refabricated in the presence of rotational magnetic field to enhance the dispersion of paramagnetic fillers. Results display an increment of selectivity by 8% and CO2 permeability by 46% relative to unmagnetised MMM of 3 wt% loading.
