Stimuli-responsive polymer hydrogels as a new class of draw agent for forward osmosis desalination

Author affiliations

Abstract

Ionic polymer hydrogels with thermal responsive units are found to induce higher water permeation rates in the osmosis process, and higher water release rates under a combination of pressure and thermal stimuli. These hydrogels have the potential for use as draw agent in forward osmosis desalination.
