New filtration technique could see much faster & more efficient lithium extraction from brines
March 9, 2020

An international research team has pioneered and patented a new filtration technique that could one day slash lithium extraction times. The study, published today in the international journal Nature Materials, presents findings that demonstrate the way in which Metal-Organic Framework (MOF) channels can mimic the filtering function, or ‘ion selectivity’, of biological ion channels embedded[…]
