Membraneless seawater desalination in microfluidic systems
A new method for the desalination of sea water has been reported by a team of American and German researchers in the journal Angewandte Chemie ("Electrochemically Mediated Seawater Desalination").
In contrast to conventional methods, this technique consumes little energy and is very simple. This electrochemically mediated seawater desalination is based on a system of microchannels and a bipolar electrode.
