High Flux and Low Pressure Drop Nanofibrous Microfiltration Membranes for Removal of Bacteria and Viruses
A novel application of composite nanofibers for the creation of high performance water filters. Background: Waters contaminated with bacteria, viruses, and toxic heavy metal ions are responsible for up to 1.8 million deaths each year. Although methods such as ultra-filtration and reverse osmosis have been discovered to remove viruses, these methods...
