The chaotropic anions perchlorate and thiocyanate adsorb to artificial phospholipid membranes. The negative electrostatic potential they produce at the surface of the membranes was measured by two independent techniques. The conductance produced by neutral carriers of cations and anions was measured to estimate changes in the surface potentials of planar… CONTINUE READING
