In this study, nano-sized fluorescent molecules were employed as surrogate nano-contaminants. By continuously monitoring the rejection efficiency of these fluorescent molecules, breaches in the RO system could be detected in real-time. The highly charged fluorescent molecules can be easly removed by ion exchange in polishing steps.
