In this work, we present a review of recent results  in the design of ultrafiltration by using photopolymerization. Non-solvent induced phase separation (NIPS) was coupled with photopolymerization and the starting polysulfone polymer (PSU) was either modified with methacrylated photocurable functionalities (PSU-DM) or the PSU was mixed with an acrylated resin. The resulting membranes showed an enhancement of solvent resistance, due to the crosslinking matrix. Finally, the solvent-resistant membranes were coated them with polydompamine in order to couple ultrafiltration and removal of contaminants by adsorption.
