Graphene learned desalinate seawater

Graphene has many useful properties. It is a very thin, lightweight and durable material, and yet it is perfectly bends, conducts heat and electricity. It was first produced in 2004, and since then scientists have found it more and more applications. Recently, for example, researchers from the University of Manchester conducted experiments which revealed that they have created the graphene network copes with the desalination of water by passing it through himself, but at the same time delaying the sodium ions, chlorine and other elements.

Scientists have tried to make such a filter before, but it is slightly swelled by contact with water from flowing not only water but also other particles, however with desalination handled rather bad. Experts were able to solve this problem by learning to glue strips of single graphene using epoxy resin and do network with cells of a fixed size. Graphene sieve created scientists very effectively desalinate water by passing only about two percent of other elements that, together with manufacturing simplicity makes the invention very good and low-water desalinator.

We are not yet ready to answer the question in the University of Manchester about how these filters affect graphene pollution, but the scientists are going to answer this question in the near future.
