A drop of rubbing alcohol and office laminator provides manufacturability boost for single atom thick membranes

Mar. 5, 2021—Vanderbilt engineers used  a drop of rubbing alcohol, an office laminator and creativity to develop scalable processes for manufacturing single atom thin membranes. Their membranes outperformed state-of-the-art commercial dialysis membranes and the approach is fully compatible with roll-to-roll manufacturing. Details of the imaginative experiment are recently published in the journal of the Royal Chemistry Society:...
