Outline

We will develop a broad theory for evaluating the adhesion of different sized solutes over membranes of different sized porosity. By understanding the fundamental aspects of internal flow within a porous material on its surface adhesive properties, it could be possible in the future to extrapolate our research findings to applications in areas as diverse as protein folding and surface-induced crystallization and reactions. The practical outcomes of such fundamental research can eventually find a role in reducing corrosion or enhancing heat-transfer processes or even altering the biological cells ability to proliferate on surfaces.
