Abstract

An array of Carbon-nanotubes was incorporated across a polymer film to form a well ordered nanoporous structure. These membrane can emulate the selective transport and extraordinarily fast flow possible in biological cellular channels. With continuous experimental research on these synthetic membranes, it could lead to wide range potential applications such as: chemical separations, bio-sensors, and drug delivery. A major challenge for current membranes is to achieve high flux with high selectivity. This requires high density of uniform pores, ability to functionalize the pore entrances, and short non-tortuous path of channels for increased flux.
