2D Nanomaterials for use in water filtration applications


Join Dr. Mark Bissett, Co-Founder & Chief Scientific Officer (CSO), Molymem Ltd., at the WFI 2022 Annual Conference on December 7, 2022. He will be addressing the context of the progress in the wider academic field on the use of 2D materials for filtration, as well as discuss future directions


2D Nanomaterials for use in water filtration applications

A new class of materials, known as 2D nanomaterials, is becoming more and more popular within academia for applications in separation technology, and recently we have seen them begin to transition from the lab into the industry. The most widely known of these materials is graphene and the related graphene oxide. Our company, Molymem Limited, is a University of Manchester spin-out which is commercializing our patented technology based on the 2D nanomaterial molybdenum disulphide (MoS2). This material is used to form a coating consisting of a laminar structure of these 2D layers on top of porous supporting layers and allows for an improvement in performance for efficient ionic rejection and nanofiltration applications in the water treatment industry. We can control the rejection and flux through the chemical functionalization of this coating, allowing for a high degree of tunability. In this talk, I will give a technical background of our technology and put it in the context of the progress in the wider academic field on the use of 2D materials for filtration, as well as discuss future directions we may see these 2D materials get adopted in the near future.
