Title: Entropic selectivity in air separation via a bilayer nanoporous graphene membrane

Abstract

Molecular dynamics simulations show that controlling the pore size and the pore shape via the bilayer nanoporous graphene membrane provides a novel way to enhance entropic selectivity for air separation via tumbling motion of the oxygen molecule.
