In this research, organic nanoparticles are produced by using different nanoporous membranes with different diameters in different solutions. In production; two liquids, a feed solution and a receiver solution, are seperated by a nanoporous polycarbonate tracketched (PCTE) membrane. The feed solution is pumped through the membrane into the receiver solution. The feed solution contained biopolymers dissolved in HCl and the receiver solution contained NaOH. pH change is used as precipitation method. Chitosan, collagen and alginic acid sodium salt from brown algae are used as biomaterials in order to obtain nanoparticles. Different sized nanoporous membranes arc used to find the ideal pore and particle sizes. Nanoparticles are illustrated by SEM and sphere-shaped nanoparticles with different diameters and needle shaped structures are observed.
