Abstract

Nanofluidic systems are found naturally in geological formations and biology, but they also are implemented in technology, where mass exchange is the governing process. Here we employed recently developed multiscale model for diffusion in nanoconfinement to understand passive transport regimes in nanochannels. Hew we use a critical parameter that may help to differentiate different diffusion regimes in nanochannels. Our study shows a new insight into diffusive mass transport through nanoconfined structures and establishes relations among geometry, interface effects and mass transport kinetics.
