Publication date2006

This entry focuses on synthetic ion channels and pores that are made to respond to chemical stimulation. It covers topics such as pore design, methods of detection, molecular recognition, ligand gating, blockage, and the use of these pores as detectors (chemical reactions, enzyme assays), (bio)sensors and catalysts.
