Controlling ionic current through a nanopore by tuning pH: a Local Equilibrium Monte Carlo study

28 Dec 2018 Fertig Dávid Valiskó Mónika Boda Dezső

The purpose of this work is to create a model of a nanofluidic transistor which is able to mimic the effects of pH on nanopore conductance. The pH of the electrolyte is an experimentally controllable parameter through which the charge pattern can be tuned: pH affects the ratio of the protonated/deprotonated forms of the functional groups anchored to the surface of the nanopore (for example, amino and carboxyl groups)...
