Symposium NM03-Nanoscale Mass Transport Through 2D and 1D Nanomaterials

2D and 1D nanomaterials offer fundamentally new opportunities to control nanoscale mass transport and present potential for breakthrough advances in gas separation, nanofiltration, desalination, ionic/molecular separation, proton transport, DNA translocation, dialysis and protein desalting, among others. The outstanding properties of 2D and 1D nanomaterials provides unique opportunities to overcome the historical trade-off in permeance vs selectivity endemic to nanoscale mass transport. However, challenges in scalable synthesis, controlled assembly and integration into functional devices using scalable manufacturing processes have limited progress towards practical applications. Recent research progress has helped to overcome many of the challenges, allowing progress towards practical applications. This interdisciplinary symposium aims to bring together the community of researcher working on nanoscale mass transport through 2D and 1D nanomaterials including fundamental physics, theory, material synthesis and characterization, device integration and scalable manufacturing, to disseminate the latest advances. The symposium will help promote the field of nanoscale mass transport through 2D and 1D nanomaterials and help to form connections between researchers to accelerate innovation and move these materials towards practical applications.



Topics will include:

  • Water, ion and liquid transport through 2D and 1D membranes
  • Gas transport through 2D and 1D membranes
  • Synthesis and Characterization of 2D and 1D materials for transport/membrane applications
  • Advances in membrane fabrication with 2D and 1D materials
  • Fundamentals of nanoscale transport phenomena: theory and experiments
