New multilayer graphene structure allows ‘ultraprecise,’ ‘ultrafast’ water filtering | Kurzweil AI

University of Manchester researchers have taken another key step toward a seawater filter: they’ve developed one-atom-wide graphene-oxide (GO) capillaries by building multilayer GO membranes (laminates). As described in Science, these new laminates allow for “ultraprecise” selection of molecules that can … Continue reading
