Nanostructured Membranes for Water Purification

Omowunmi A. Sadik, Nian Du, Idris Yazgan and Veronica Okello,    Department of Chemistry, Center for Advanced Sensors and Environmental Systems, State University of New York at Binghamton, Binghamton, NY, USA

Application of nanotechnology to water purification is currently faced with the issue of how to design nanomaterials that are capable of collecting and preconcentrating a large number of contaminants per unit volume. Specifically, it is not clear how to interface nanoparticles with contaminants because direct addition of nanoparticles into drinking water may require extra separation steps to recover the expensive nanomaterials. Due to their large pore sizes, conventional membrane ...
