Advances in Nanostructured Membranes for Water Desalination

Madhuleena Bhadra and Somenath Mitra,    Department of Chemistry and Environmental Science, New Jersey Institute of Technology, University Heights, Newark, NJ, USA

The availability of freshwater resources is dwindling in many parts of the world, a problem that is anticipated to grow with budding population. One promising source of potable water is the world’s virtually limitless supply of seawater, but so far desalination technologies have been too expensive for widespread use. With current advances in nanotechnology and the development of diverse nanomaterials, which can be employed for successful membrane fabrication, nanostructured membrane-based desalination might be ...
