Graphene oxide (GO) membranes can be made from 2D GO nanosheets and exhibit selective transport for smaller gases like hydrogen over bigger gases like carbon dioxide. The presentation will discuss synthesis, structure and gas transport mechanism of 2D structures GO membranes, and compare them with other 2D structures microporous membranes for separation. The talk will be concluded with an analysis on the advantages and disadvantages of GO membranes for gas separation.
