Abstract

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are very stable structures. Their chemistry is still little known. For health and water purification, new treatment techniques that can respond to the growing demand for fresh water are required. These include Bucky-paper fabrication and characterisation and direct contact membrane distillation. These techniques require further testing and for longer periods.
