Engineers develop better graphene sieve that could advance clean water efforts

Sep. 23, 2020—Developing atomically thin graphene membranes used to separate salt from water is extraordinarily complex and the effort grows more crucial as population growth, industrialization and climate change strain freshwater resources. Vanderbilt engineers have designed a simple defect-sealing technique to correct variations in pore size in graphene membranes. Vanderbilt engineering researchers report a breakthrough in scalable...
