Engineers in the USA at the University of Illinois are developing an energy-efficient material that is capable of removing salt from sea water. By performing molecular dynamics simulations they have shown that nanopores in single-layer molybdenum disulfide can effectively reject ions and allow transport of water at a high rate.
