On the role of driving force for water transport through nanochannels within graphene oxide laminates

Abstract

The comprehensive understanding of water transport in GO membranes is of great interest. The water transport mechanism studied by many researchers suggest that capillary pressure is the driving force of water transport in GO membrane at the highest humidity level. Besides the capillary pressure, low-friction flow and surface diffusion also contribute to the fast water transport. This mini review provides an integrated image on the role of driving force in water transport through nanochanneles in GO membranes which can be helpful in developing high-performance GO-based membranes in future for water, environment and energy-related applications.
