Multilayered graphene-based membranes are promising for a variety of applications related to ion or molecule transport, such as energy storage and water treatment. However, the complex three-dimensional cascading nanoslit-like structure embedded in the membrane makes it difficult to interpret and rationalize experimental results, quantitatively compare with the traditional membrane systems, and quantitatively design new membrane structures. In this paper, systematic numerical simulations were performed to establish an equivalent one-dimensional (1D) nanochannel model to represent the structure of multilayered graphene membranes. We have established a quantitative relationship between effecti..View full abstract
