Electrophoretic Mobilities of Counterions and a Polymer in Cylindrical Pores

An article published by Sunil P. Singh and M. Muthukumar in the Journal of Chemical Physics.

Dr. Sunil Singh and Professor Muthukumar have investigated the coupled movement of a polyelectrolyte chain and its counterions, which are under confinement inside a nanopore and an external electric field. Their simulations show the frequent occurrence of the counterions moving towards the wrong electrode, due to them being carried by the polymer.
