This paper reports the ﬁrst demonstration of the environmental application of a polyimide ﬁlm (Kapton) with patterned thru-holes as an active particulate matter (PM) air ﬁlter. The Kapton air ﬁlter captures PM using micro-sized thru-holes and a strong electrostatic force. It is highly efﬁcient, transparent, ﬂexible, and heat-resistant. Furthermore, it can be recycled simply by washing it with tap water. The proposed PM ﬁlter is a promising candidate for a highly efﬁcient, economical, and recyclable air ﬁlter for home appliances, such as air-puriﬁers, air-conditioners, and humidiﬁers, as well as for industrial ﬁltration systems.
