Principle

Thermo-Responsive Channel

Thermo-responsive channel. The hydrogel lined channel opens above and closes below the critical temperature of the hydrogel.

Advantage

The combination of a responsive hydrogel with a rigid porous supporting structure yields a membrane with high mechanical strength and high on-off-permeability ratio.
