Presentation Summary

The flow of water across multilayer graphene-based membranes involves multiple twists and turns. We present a theoretical framework which successfully predicts the permeability across such labyrinthine structures. It provides a benchmark to which experimental data are favorably compared, and offers possibility of application as liquid separation membranes.
