Ion exchange membranes for the battery have been extensively studied. Electric resistance of the membranes is desirable to be as low as possible to decrease energy consumption. Further, the membranes should have high chemical stability, because they are . An ion-exchange membrane is a semi-permeable membrane that transports certain dissolved ions, while blocking other ions or neutral molecules.. Ion-exchange membranes are therefore electrically conductive. They are often used in desalination and chemical recovery applications, moving ions from one solution to another with little passage of water.   Transport and Diffusion across Cell Membranes is a comprehensive treatment of the transport and diffusion of molecules and ions across cell membranes. This book shows that the same kinetic equations (with appropriate modification) can describe all the specialized membrane transport systems: the pores, the carriers, and the two classes of pumps. Additionally, whereas small ions could easily slip through the spaces in the mosaic of the membrane, their charge prevents them from doing so. Ions such as sodium, potassium, calcium, and chloride must have a special means of penetrating plasma membranes. Simple sugars and amino acids also need help with transport across plasma : Bartee, Lisa, Anderson, Christine.

Cited by: Although we most commonly think of water as the solvent in which “interesting” molecules (e.g. ions) diffuse, its concentration and movement across membranes has important biological consequences. Osmosis is a term that specifically refers to the diffusion of water across a membrane. In this case, water is considered a solute rather than a. Because of its hydrophobic interior, the lipid bilayer of cell membranes serves as a barrier to the passage of most polar molecules. This barrier function is crucially important because it allows the cell to maintain concentrations of solutes in its cytosol that are different from those in the extracellular fluid and in each of the intracellular membrane-enclosed by:

Ions, electrodes, and membranes. [Jiří Koryta] -- "This book is an introduction to electrochemistry specifically aimed at people entering the field from other areas of science. It focuses on both practical and theoretical aspects of the subject. A membrane is a selective barrier; it allows some things to pass through but stops others. Such things may be molecules, ions, or other small particles. Biological membranes include cell membranes (outer coverings of cells or organelles that allow passage of certain constituents); nuclear membranes, which cover a cell nucleus; and tissue membranes, such as mucosae and serosae.
