Mechanisms of selective ion transport and salt rejection in carbon nanostructures

Corry, Ben


Carbon nanostructures, especially carbon nanotubes and graphene nanopores, have been suggested for use in a wide range of purifi cation and separation applications, from the desalination of seawater to the separation of liquids and gases. However, achieving the required high degree of selectivity among the molecules passing through the pores while maintaining rapid transport is a diffi cult challenge. Here, we examine the physical mechanisms by which nanopores distinguish between small ions...[Show more]
