The importance of dehydration in determining ion transport in narrow pores

Richards, Laura A.; Schafer, Andrea I.; Richards, Bryce; Corry, Ben


The transport of hydrated ions through narrow pores is important for a number of processes such as the desalination and filtration of water and the conductance of ions through biological channels. Here, molecular dynamics simulations are used to systematically examine the transport of anionic drinking water contaminants (fluoride, chloride, nitrate, and nitrite) through pores ranging in effective radius from 2.8 to 6.5 Ã to elucidate the role of hydration in excluding these species during...[Show more]
