New ‘super material’ discovered in Singapore.

The researchers believe the nanomaterial – dubbed TiO2 – could help to tackle various energy and environmental challenges. "With our unique nanomaterial, we hope to be able to help convert today's waste into tomorrow's resources, such as clean water and energy," said Associate Professor Darren Sun, pictured. To create the membrane, the researchers began by turning titanium dioxide crystals into nanofibres, which they then fabricated into flexible filter membranes containing carbon, copper, zinc or tin. "While there is no single silver bullet to solving two of the world's biggest challenges: cheap renewable energy and an abundant supply of clean water; our single, multi-use membrane comes close, with its titanium dioxide nanoparticles being a key catalyst in discovering such solutions," Sun noted. The researchers say the material can desalinate water, be used as flexible wa...
