We study the selective adsorption of various cations into a layered slit system using grand canonical Monte Carlo simulations. The slit systemis formed by a series of ne gatively charged membranes. The electrolyte con tains two kinds of cations with different sizes and valences modelled by charged hard spheres immersed in a continuum dielectric solvent. We present the results for various cases depending on the combinations of the properties of the competing cations. We concentrate on the…

Specific ion effects on the electrokinetic properties of iron oxide nanoparticles: experiments and simulations.
The results suggest that ionic polarizabilities and ion sizes are to a great extent responsible for the specific ion effects on the electrokinetic potential of iron oxide particles.
Electrolyte pore/solution partitioning by expanded grand canonical ensemble Monte Carlo simulation.
Using a newly developed grand canonical Monte Carlo approach based on fractional exchanges of dissolved ions and water molecules, we studied equilibrium partitioning of both components between
Multiscale modeling of a rectifying bipolar nanopore: Comparing Poisson-Nernst-Planck to Monte Carlo.
Current data is presented that characterize the nanopore's behavior as a device, as well as concentration, electrical potential, and electrochemical potential profiles, which are appropriate to reproduce the basic behavior of the bipolar nanopore.
Calculating the Electrostatic Potential Profiles of Double Layers from Simulation Ion Density Profiles
Computer simulations of the planar double layer geometry provide the charge profile with statistical noise. To compute the mean electrostatic potential profile from the charge profile, one must solve
