Since the discovery of the electrical and optical properties of graphene and other 2D materials, the focus of research shifts more and more to investigation of their membrane properties. This interest is based on the unique permeation properties of nanomembranes made of 2D materials such as (i) ballistic transport of substances, (ii) high selectivity for gases, liquids (incl. water) and ions (incl. protons and Li+), as well as (iii) high mechanical and chemical stability. However, pristine graphene sheets are impermeable for nearly all atoms and molecules except protons. Therefore, to achieve the desired functional properties, well defined defects, i.e. nanopores, have to be introduced via post-treatment or during synthesis. Alternatively, the membranes can be prepared as multilayer laminates.

The progress and potentials for implementation of 2D materials in filtration and hydrogen technologies will be discussed in this workshop.
