Diffusion based separations are essential for laboratory and clinical dialysis processes. New molecularly thin nanoporous membranes may improve the rate and quality of separations achievable by these processes. In this work we have performed protein and small molecule separations with 15 nm thick porous nanocrystalline silicon (pnc-Si) membranes and compared the results to 1- and 3- dimensional models of diffusion through ultrathin membranes. The models predict the amount of resistance… CONTINUE READING
