NEWT Publication |Energy barriers to anion transport in polyelectrolyte multilayer nanofiltration membranes: Role of intra-pore diffusion


“Understanding how membrane structure affects selectivity is key to fabricating next-generation membranes for water treatment. We found that ion selectivity of nanofiltration membranes is independent of membrane thickness. Instead, the … Continue reading NEWT Publication |Energy barriers to anion transport in polyelectrolyte multilayer nanofiltration membranes: Role of intra-pore diffusion
