AquaporinZ (AqpZ)-containing, planar, biomimetic membranes hold great application potential in water purification and seawater desalination, due to the excellent permeability and selectivity of AqpZ. However, there remain many challenges for the production of robust and defect-free supported lipid bilayer (SLB) biomimetic membranes. By forming amide bonds between the lipid bilayer and microporous substrate, we fabricated an AqpZ-incorporated SLB forward osmosis (FO) membrane, with a large area… CONTINUE READING
