Reverse osmosis is based on the process of osmosis. In the latter case, a semi-permeable membrane in a container acts on the movement of molecules. Small particles flow through microscopic pores, but not larger ones. This results in a solution with a higher concentration on one side of the membrane. This transition process is called osmosis and the pressure generated at the membrane is called osmotic pressure. If the osmotic pressure is increased, the movement takes place in the opposite direction, i.e. back to the diluted solution: reverse osmosis. In this way, for example, plants produce fresh water from seawater. In water treatment, reverse osmosis is used for complete desalination and thus produces ultrapure water.
