We computationally demonstrate that two-dimensional covalent triazine frameworks (CTFs) provide opportunities in water desalination. By varying the chemical building blocks, the pore structure, chemistry, and membrane performance can be designed, leading to two orders of magnitude higher water permeability than polyamide membranes while maintaining excellent ability to reject salts.
