报告摘要

————————————

Membrane biofouling is a critical issue in membrane technology since it can greatly degrade the membrane’s performance. Traditional anti-biofouling coatings usually involve the release of metals, biocides, or antibiotics to control bacterial growth. However, the release of these highly toxic compounds is of great concern due to their potential environmental impacts. The graphene oxide (GO) membranes have been well studied for design of antimicrobial surfaces due to its contact-mediated mode of action, which allows for an antimicrobial material that does not deplete over time or release biocides into the environment. However, GO membranes are not able to achieve the high antimicrobial properties that can be widely used for antimicrobial surfaces. Herein, antimicrobial properties of MoS2 membrane are explored in this work in order to achieve higher antimicrobial efficiency to potentially be used for antimicrobial biofouling applications.
