In an increasing number of cases, the physics of molecular transport and thermodynamics for pores below 10 nm has been shown to deviate substantially from existing theory. CENT’s mission is to address emerging and compelling gaps in our knowledge of fluid flow and molecular transport in single digit nanopores and to establish the scientific foundation for developing transformative molecular separation technologies impacting the Water – Energy Nexus.

Short clip (3 min) captures CENT mission and approach.


Extended clip (8 min) talks about CENT mission and highlights some examples of interdisciplinary work. 

This documentary is dedicate to memory of our friend and colleague Mark Reed (1955-2021).
