Reverse osmosis (RO) is regarded as one of the most efficient technique for desalination of seawater. Further the technology has greatly enhanced the supply of clean water through the purification of nontraditional water sources such as brackish, sea, and wastewater. Reverse osmosis membranes used in the desalination are gaining popularity for water purification applications which needs high salt rejection. However, due to fouling of membranes by different factors including microorganisms, they have been unable to realize their full potential.
