Title:
Mathematical modeling and simulation of nanopore blocking by precipitation

Wolfram, M-T; Burger, M; Siwy, Z S
Abstract:
High surface charges of polymer pore walls and applied electric fields can lead to the formation and subsequent dissolution of precipitates in nanopores. These precipitates block the pore, leading to current fluctuations. We present an extended Poisson-Nernst-Planck system which includes chemical reactions of precipitation and dissolution. We discuss the mathematical modeling and present 2D numerical simulations. © 2010 IOP Publishing Ltd.
