Graphene and graphene oxide for desalination

Author affiliations


There is a huge scope for graphene-based materials to be used as membranes for desalination. A very recent study has confirmed that 100% salt rejection can be achieved for commonly used ions by utilizing single layer nonporous graphene. However, the cost effective fabrication procedure for graphene oxide membranes with precise control of pore size can offer a practical solution for filtration if one can achieve 100% percent salt rejection.
