Highly functional membrane developed for producing freshwater from seawater!

A desalination membrane laminated with nanosheets featuring 2D nanochannels Date: January 22, 2021Source: Kobe UniversitySummary: Researchers have developed a new desalination membrane by laminating a two-dimensional carbon material on to the surface of a porous polymer membrane. This membrane has the potential to perform highly efficient desalination because it is possible to control the gaps between its nanosheets and the charge on the nanosheets' surfaces. It is hoped that ...
