High Speed Water Sterilization Using One-Dimensional Nanostructures

Apr. 2011- Recently, Schoen et. al. investigated the incorporation of silver nanowires (AgNWs) and carbon nanotubes (CNTs) within a matrix of cotton, enabling a membrane with multiscale nanostructured materials to effectively inactivate  bacteria in water. This strategy takes advantage of the chemical and mechanical robustness of cotton as the support, along with the large pore structure between cotton ...
