Reverse osmosis

Reverse osmosis,

Definition of Reverse osmosis:

  1. Liquid filtering process in which a contaminated (more concentrated) liquid is forced to pass through a semi-permeable membrane that block most dissolved or suspended contaminants. It is called reverse because in normal osmosis a less-concentrated liquid passes into a more concentrated one.

  2. A process by which a solvent passes through a porous membrane in the direction opposite to that for natural osmosis when subjected to a hydrostatic pressure greater than the osmotic pressure.
