History[ edit ] A process of osmosis through semipermeable membranes was first observed in by Jean-Antoine Nollet. For the following years, osmosis was only a phenomenon observed in the laboratory.

Desalination therefore welcomes submissions detailing work that is clearly connected to water desalting including applications of desalination to seawater, groundwater and waste waters, such as thermal, membrane, sorption and hybrid processes.
The journal considers articles showing advances in science made on desalination materials, processes and related technologies. Articles can feature transport and process modelling, energy consumption, renewable energy and energy recovery.
Topics can also be on related systems such as pre-treatment, post-treatment, integrated plants and brine disposal. Performance aspects are also of interest, for example causes, consequences, and countermeasures of fouling and scaling.
Articles presenting interesting technical, economic, and regulatory analyses of full-scale plants will also be considered. Overall, topics of submitted articles are prioritised to those well suited to a journal dedicated to the field of desalination.
All submitted articles must predominantly consist of innovative work and original thinking, and present previously unreported outcomes and experiences. A high standard of quality writing and presentation is expected for submitted articles commensurate of articles published in leading international journals.
Prospective Review Authors are requested to contact the Editorial team prior to submission. Short Communications should be concise and not exceed printed pages but must include complete descriptions of any investigation of the research which must be cutting-edge and novel with knowledge that warrants speedy communication to the readership.Universal Journal of Environmental Research and Technology A Short Review on Process and Applications of Reverse Osmosis *Garud R.

Reverse osmosis desalination technology. Reverse osmosis (RO) is a water purification technology that uses a semipermeable membrane to remove ions, molecules and larger particles from drinking water.
In reverse osmosis, an applied pressure is used to overcome osmotic pressure, a colligative property, that is driven by chemical potential differences of the solvent, a thermodynamic parameter.. Reverse osmosis can remove many types of.

Download MB. What is reverse osmosis? What is reverse osmosis? Reverse osmosis is a special kind of diffusion.
The word reverse means the opposite of the original direction of movement and osmosis is the movement of water molecules from where they are plentiful to less abundant over a selectively permeable membrane.
