A Game Changer? Water Desalination Using Nanoporous Single-Layer Graphene with Tunable Pore Size

Researchers at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, New Mexico State University and the University of Tennessee demonstrated the first experimental evidence of the use of single-layer porous graphene as a desalination membrane in 2015. Further recent and positive developments on the potential for desalination of seawater using graphene oxide membranes has been conducted by researchers at the University of Manchester.

As stated in the publication by US researchers, the resulting porous…

Innovative Aquapore Cross-Flow Membranes for Desalination via Biomimicry

"There's over a billion people on this planet that don't have access to clean drinking water". (Michael Moore)

I have been following the latest developments in the area of desalination. I am of the belief that nature holds many secrets for us to discover in order for our propagation as a species. For instance, it struck me quite a few years ago when I was working at the University of Essex in the UK that mangoves are capable of desalinating water without the need for extreme...
