Title:Ultrapermeable Membranes Coming of Age
Abstract:We are in an age of exponential development of high performance membranes. The emergence of novel desalting materials and fabrication methods are blooming. Aquaporin proteins, carbon nanotubes, nanoporous graphene and graphene oxide have emerged as promising candidates for high performance reverse osmosis membranes. These novel membranes can potentially offer orders of magnitude improvement over conventional thin-film composite polyamide membranes. This presentation provides a comprehensive assessment of the current progresses and challenges in synthesizing membranes with ultrapermeability.
