Abstract

The interface of silica nanochannel of 10 nm was studied by molecular modeling and experimental methods. Molecular Dynamics study on glucose solution revealed that 2-3 nm of interface solution to silica walls has reduced glucose diffusivity. That reduction affects the effective diffusivity of glucose in silica nanochannel. Experimental results show Fickian-like release of glucose through 13 nm nanochannel. Molecular modeling and experimental results suggest that glucose is not sufficiently confined to possess non-Fickian behavior.
