Soft electrodes in water desalination: application to multi-valent ions

The capacitive deionization (CDI) method, in which the capacitance of the electrical double layers is used for removing ions from aqueous solutions, can be more efficient if some procedures are devised to help the bare electrode double layers in adsorbing ions.
