OneAtom 12 has revolutionised the approach to improving both anion exchange membrane (AEM) and cation exchange membranes (CEM) efficiency in terms of diffusion dialysis and separation factor.
The trade-off between these factors has been one of the everlasting challenges in the diffusion dialysis process. Accordingly, OneAtom 12 has developed a novel strategy to fabricate both AEM and CEM’s nanosheets using a non-solvent induced phase inversion method. This extraordinary novel approach has enhanced both flux rates, maintaining high selectivity whilst enhancing the membranes stability.
OneAtom 12 membranes exhibit a finely-tuned morphology displaying a thin active layer (˂ 350 nm thickness) the thinnest active layer reported so far in the literature. Moreover, the membrane exhibited a simultaneous higher permeability coefficient and separation. The fabrication procedure of these novel membranes will open the door fto practically tackling the existing industrial challenges in many recovery processes.
