Moreover, in California, Baoxia Mi, an assistant professor, introduces research in progress regarding the matter. Baoxia states that a graphene membrane filter development is already in progress. She believes that this filter can sanitise water from multiple pollutants, including bacteria and viruses, harmful chemicals, and oil.
Mi introduced that adding oxygen to the graphene membrane creates graphene oxide, resulting in the creation of holes in the structure, allowing water to pass through. However, it is also noted that this can make the material dissolve. With her research, multiple innovations have emerged, paving the way for various ideas to filter water through graphene.
