A mechanical nanogate based on a carbon nanotube for reversible control of ion conduction

He, Zhongjin; Corry, Ben; Lu, Xiaohua; Zhou, Jian


Control of mass transport through nanochannels is of critical importance in many nanoscale devices and nanofiltration membranes. The gates in biological channels, which control the transport of substances across cell membranes, can provide inspiration for this purpose. Gates in many biological channels are formed by a constriction ringed with hydrophobic residues which can prevent ion conduction even when they are not completely physically occluded. In this work, we use molecular dynamics...[Show more]
