Synthetic Chloride-Selective Carbon Nanotubes Examined by Using Molecular and Stochastic Dynamics

Hilder, Tamsyn A.; Gordon, Dan; Chung, Shin-Ho

Description

Synthetic channels, such as nanotubes, offer the possibility of ion-selective nanoscale pores which can broadly mimic the functions of various biological ion channels, and may one day be used as antimicrobial agents, or for treatment of cystic fibrosis. We have designed a carbon nanotube that is selectively permeable to anions. The virtual nanotubes are constructed from a hexagonal array of carbon atoms (graphene) rolled up to form a tubular structure, with an effective radius of 4.53 Å and...[Show more]
