- Membranes with highly uniform pore size are important in various fields. Here we report the preparation and performance of ordered membranes, the pore diameter of which is on the micrometer scale. The ordered membranes fabricated at two-phase interfaces enable a high-resolution and energy-saving separation process. Moreover, a possible mechanism for the formation of through-pores has been proposed and experimentally verified.
