Molecule Channels Directed by Cation-Decorated Graphene Oxide Nanosheets and Their Application as Membrane Reactors




Highly selective macromembranes, fabricated by cation-decorated graphene oxide, exhibit an excellent selectivity toward a wide range of solvents. Mixed solvents are successfully separated, based on which a membrane reactor is designed to promote a series of chemical reactions. The cations bonding to the graphene oxide nanosheets are found to be responsible for this selectivity by cation–π, electrostatic interactions, and hydrogen bonding.
