58 Application of CNTs in Membranes (A Review)


Since membranes are used to separate ions, gases, water purification and various purification products, achieving a new alternative structures to increase their yield is very important. Carbon structures such as graphene and carbon nanotubes are very much considered due to their hydrophobic properties and the free space between them, as well as the ability to control the hydrophobicity and pore size. In this research, the role of carbon nanotubes with dense and regular structures, matrix nanotubes and also open end nanotubes, as membranes, have been investigated and their properties have been described.
