desalination

June 26, 2013

The left panel shows the salt (which is tagged with a fluorescent tracer) flowing upward after a voltage is applied by an electrode (the dark rectangle) jutting into the channel at just the point where it branches. In the right panel no voltage is being applied.

I read about the novel desalination process developed at the University of Texas Austin. How/where can I obtain copies of the published research on electrochemically mediated seawater desalination?

If you can achieve this is large scale at least in soda fountain size. Wonderful achievement guys :)
