Manchester leads the way in graphene membrane research
Date:4/5/2013

>"These are of interest, for example, for removing carbon dioxide from power station flue gases, or for removing organic compounds from water. By combining PIMs with graphene, we expect to produce membranes with even better performance under long-term conditions of use.

"We will also be looking at practical ways of using the ability of graphene to act as a perfect barrier in, for example, food packaging, and we will be building graphene into sensors for detecting human diseases and agricultural pests."

The research into graphene batteries and supercapacitors is led by Professor Robert Dryfe, also from the School of Chemistry. The research will explore ways of addressing the limiting factors of storage for personal devices.

The University of Manchester is building the 61m National Graphene Institute, a research hub where scientists and industry will work side by side on developing the applications of the future. Funded by the EPSRC and the European Regional Development Fund, the building is expected to open in spring 2015.
