Grafoid Inc. Introduces Ion Selective GPURE Graphene Polymer Membrane for Lithium-Ion Battery Electrode Protection
Mar 14 17
Grafoid Inc. announced the development of its GPURE Graphene Polymer nano-porous membrane intended for next generation Li-Ion battery applications. The GPURE graphene polymer membrane (GPM) technology is the seventh graphene-based companion to the company's expanding GPURE Platform of new, high performing, ultra-thin materials for diverse industrial applications. The GPURE GPM product was developed as a chemically inert, freestanding membrane using graphene composites to test ion selectivity using both monovalent and divalent ions. Ion selectivity is a key requirement for a semi permeable membrane in a Li-ion battery structure.By protecting the chemically sensitive electrode materials from unwanted chemical species GPURE GPM diffuses only energy harvesting monovalent ions such as Li+, Na+ etc. Conventional membranes lack such unique property. GPURE membranes include- GPURE (A) - A high performing, free-standing membrane developed for water desalination applications, GPURE (B) - A stable, large area membrane developed for wastewater filtration suitable for very high temperature operating applications, GPURE (C) - A large area free-standing membrane developed for water filtration pre-treatment and may be suitable for use in gas separation applications and may be used as a lightweight component for automotive and sports equipment applications, GPURE (D) - A large area membrane that may be used for gas separation and sensing applications, GPURE (E) - A large area membrane intended for use in gas separation applications, GPURE (F) - May be applied as a graphene varnish for wood surfaces to protect against moisture, UV light and high temperatures.
