A new approach to water desalination

MIT researchers are using graphene layers to create a new kind of filtration material that can be far more efficient and possibly less expensive than existing desalination systems. The details of this new technology are explained in a recent paper in the journal NanoLetters here. (The paper is also available in the password protected part
