Comment on "Carbon nanotube/graphene composite for enhanced capacitive deionization performance" by Y. Wimalasiri and L. Zou

In a recent study, Wimalasiri and Zou [1] have reported the use and performance of composite electrodes of carbon nanotubes (CNT) and graphene for application as porous electrodes in capacitive deionization (CDI). While CDI is emerging as an attractive technology for water desalination, and novel electrode materials and composites are important contributions to the advancement of the field, there are several issues in this study that we must comment on.
