  8. Ion Selectivity in Synthetic and Natural Channels

    31 Mar 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Susan Rempe

    Transport across membranes and nanopores can be characterized by static equilibrium properties as well as by nonequilibrium dynamic properties. For example, equilibrium selectivity properties of a nanopore can be characterized by the difference in interaction free energy for transferring one ion...
