Membrane functionalization has been proven to be a viable and highly sustainable technology for improving the performance of composite membranes in a separation process, for example water permeability, selectivity, and life cycle. This chapter presents the use of graphene-derived 2D carbon-based nanomaterials in polymeric membrane hybridization. Since the discovery of graphene, these materials have attracted the increasing attention of researchers around the world. Nanoporous graphene, graphene oxide, and reduced graphene oxide have been inserted or deposited on the surface of composite membranes using several methods and techniques of surface modification. The applications of the resulting membranes in desalination, water purification, and organic solvent dehydration are discussed.
