What Have We Learnt About the Mechanisms of Rapid Water Transport, Ion Rejection and Selectivity in Nanopores from Molecular Simulation?

Thomas, Michael; Corry, Ben; Hilder, Tamsyn


Nanopores have demonstrated an extraordinary ability to allow water molecules to pass through their interiors at rates far exceeding expectations based on continuum theory. Moreover, simulation studies suggest that particular nanoscale pores have the potential to discriminate between water and salts as well as to distinguish between a range of different ion types. Some of the unusual features of transport in these nanopores have been elucidated with molecular dynamics simulation, specifically...[Show more]
