This report uses Monte Carlo simulations to connect stochastic single-molecule and ensemble surface adsorption of molecules from dilute solutions. Monte Carlo simulations often use a fundamental time resolution to simulate each discrete step for each molecule. The adsorption rate obtained from such a simulation surprisingly contains an error compared to the results obtained from the traditional method. Simulating adsorption kinetics is interesting in many processes, such as mass transportation…

Three-Dimensional Tracking of Interfacial Hopping Diffusion.
3D single-molecule tracking is used to explicitly demonstrate that interfacial diffusion is dominated by biased 3D Brownian motion involving bulk-surface coupling and that it can be controlled by influencing short- and long-range adsorbate-surface interactions.
Diffusion in nanoporous materials: fundamental principles, insights and challenges
Following a brief review of Fick's laws and the theory of diffusion in a homogeneous medium, we consider the application of the Fickian model to diffusion in nanoporous materials. If the pore system
Diffusion-controlled adsorption kinetics at the air/solution interface
Abstract To describe diffusion-controlled adsorption, the diffusion equation is solved under different initial and boundary conditions by means of a Laplace transformation. By solving this equation,
Ergodic and nonergodic processes coexist in the plasma membrane as observed by single-molecule tracking
It is shown that an ergodic and a nonergodic process coexist in the plasma membrane and that when the cell is treated with drugs that inhibit actin polymerization, the diffusion pattern of Kv2.1 channels recovers ergodicity.
Diffusion-controlled adsorption kinetics of aqueous micellar solution at air/solution interface
For the micellar surfactant solutions, the diffusion equation, in which the effect of the micelles on the monomer diffusion was taken into account, was solved under the initial and boundary
Unified superresolution experiments and stochastic theory provide mechanistic insight into protein ion-exchange adsorptive separations
Direct superresolution mapping and kinetic characterization of functional sites on ion-exchange ligands based on agarose, a support matrix routinely used in protein chromatography is presented.
Fractal Reaction Kinetics
Recently discovered theories of heterogeneous reaction kinetics have dramatic consequences, such as fractal orders for elementary reactions, self-ordering and self-unmixing of reactants, and rate coefficients with temporal "memories".
