Open Membrane Database (OMD)

What is the OMD?

The OMD contains data for over 650 water purification and desalination membranes that are sourced from peer-reviewed literature, patents, and commercial product data sheets. With the Database, you can perform your own analysis on membrane performance, or you can upload your own membrane data so your work may be included in analysis by other researchers.

Have more questions about the OMD? 

Check out our recent paper in the Journal of Membrane Science “The open membrane database: Synthesis-structure-performance relationships of reverse osmosis membrane”. In the article, we outline the detailed functionality of the database, the transport theory underlying the membrane performance calculations, and best practices for membrane performance testing and reporting.
