Water and ion transport through functionalised carbon nanotubes: implications for desalination technology

Corry, Ben


The use of semipermeable membranes containing carbon nanotubes (CNTs) that form continuous pores has been suggested as a way to reduce the cost of desalination via reverse osmosis. Example membranes containing aligned CNTs have been fabricated, but obtaining only the very narrow pores that are able to block the passage of ions while allowing a rapid flow of water remains a challenge and previous computational studies have focused on idealised tubes. Here molecular dynamics simulations are used...[Show more]
