Project TitleGraphene Oxide Nanocoposite Filtration
Track Code2016-013
Short Description

The University of Texas at El Paso seeks a partner for licensing a novel polyethersulfone ultrafiltration membranes containing graphene oxide (GO) nano-platelets.

Abstract

This invention uses GO as an antifouling agent in polyethersulfone membranes. Increasing GO concentration can increase viscosity leading to reduced pore radius and porosity and consequently reduced pure water flux. In addition, GO also increases the hydrophilic nature of the nanocomposite filter, allowing a greater pure water throughput.
