Summary:
Researchers used electrospray technology to create ultra-thin, ultra-smooth polyamide membranes for reverse osmosis. This scalable process allows for better control of a membrane's fundamental properties, avoids the use of chemical baths, and can be applied to a variety of membrane separation processes.

Lot of implications for this in a wide variety of fields including battery design and hydrogen generation amongst others. The ability to finely control the physical properties of these films combined with the scalable nature could bring some serious advantages and not just in desalination.
