Akbari, Abozar; Meragawi, Sally E; Martin, Samuel; Corry, Ben; Shamsaei, Ezzatollah; Easton, Christopher D.; Bhattacharyya, Dibakar; Majumder, Mainak


Solvent transport in membranes composed of stacked sheets of graphene oxide (GO) with molecular scale channels and a complex arrangement of hydrophobic and hydrophilic domains is not well understood. Here, we observe that the interlayer space between GO sheets expands in different solvents without disturbing the membrane integrity and is typically larger in aqueous media compared to nonaqueous media. However, the membranes have a tighter molecule sieving feature in aqueous media as demonstrated...[Show more]
