Salt Rejection and Water Transport Through Boron Nitride Nanotubes

Hilder, Tamsyn; Gordon, Daniel; Chung, Shin-Ho


Nanotube-based water-purification devices have the potential to transform the field of desalination and demoralization through their ability to remove salts and heavy metals without significantly affecting the fast flow of water molecules. Boron nitride nanotubes have shown superior water flow properties compared to carbon nanotubes, and are thus expected to provide a more efficient water purification device. Using molecular dynamics simulations it is shown that a (5, 5) boron nitride nanotube...[Show more]
