Artificial water channels – incipient innovative developments

Author affiliations

Abstract

Aquaporins (AQPs) are biological water channels known for fast water transport (∼108–109 water molecules per s per channel), with complete proton/ion exclusion. Few synthetic channels have been designed to mimic this high water permeability and to reject ions at a significant level. This Feature Article will discuss the incipient developments of the first artificial water channel systems.
