Membrane performance characterization can be time-consuming and costly, which is why we started the Open Membrane Database. The Open Membrane Database currently contains data for 512 water purification and desalination membranes that are sourced from peer-reviewed literature, patents, and commercial product data sheets. The Database will also grow over time, as users like yourself can easily upload data as it is published.

The Database is a new tool that will help develop next-generation membranes that supersede the performance of state-of-the-art membranes. The Database allows users to benchmark their newly developed membranes against the state of the art and use meta-analysis to develop synthesis-structure-performance relationships. All of this is accessible to you free-of-charge.
