New rose-inspired product make clean water

In a new paper published on 28 May in Advanced Materials, the authors report a novel water purification device inspired by a rose. The solar-steaming system is made from layered, black paper sheets shaped into petals encased in a glass jar as a novel portable water purification system. The “stem” is a tubular structure that collects untreated water from any source — including rain — which flows through the 3D petals. The system uses energy from sunlight to separate salt and other impurities from water through evaporation.
