Imperial College London scientists have created a new type of membrane that could improve water purification and battery energy storage efforts.
The new approach to ion exchange membrane design, which is published today in Nature Materials, uses low-cost plastic membranes with many tiny hydrophilic ('water attracting') pores. They improve on current technology that is more expensive and difficult to apply practically.
