Project summary

Australia is the driest inhabited continent on earth and is regularly subject to the prolonged rainfall deficiency, increased surface water salinity and water bodies contamination. Decontamination, desalination and separation technologies have captured great interest as the alternative ways to augment the available water resources. We are developing new strategies to prepare low cost and high performance nanomaterials / nanodevices for water pollutants (heavy metal ions and organic toxins) removal and saline water desalination.
