The current status of research in the field of development and application of photocatalytic membrane reactors for water treatment from organic pollutants has been analyzed. The main types of these reactors and the construction techniques and properties of catalytically active membranes were discussed. The combination of photocatalysis and the membrane methods was shown to facilitate the effective removal of different organic substances from water. The factors affecting the water purification efficiency and the prospects of using the hybrid photocatalytic membrane reactors in water treatment processes were also specified.
