Conformationally Controlled Oligocholate Membrane Transporters: Learning through Water PlayAccounts of Chemical Research
Publication VersionPublished Version
AbstractControlled translocation of molecules and ions across lipid membranes is the basis of numerous biological functions. Because synthetic systems can help researchers understand the more complex biological ones, many chemists have developed synthetic mimics of biological transporters. Both systems need to deal with similar fundamental challenges. In addition to providing mechanistic insights into transport mechanisms, synthetic transporters are useful in a number of applications including separation, sensing, drug delivery, and catalysis.
