A proton ballet through a molecular solid


Movement of water and protons, including transport in confined spaces, is of considerable importance in a number of key areas of science and technology. Water transport can be observed in diverse media from solids such as zeolites, through spongy clays, to living cells, and in various contexts such as molecular storage materials, catalysis, and soil science. Proton migration, which is often related to water transport, is of current interest in energy applications, while water transport in biology is of special importance, especially in cell membranes in which sophisticated structures permit the passage of water while blocking ion transport.
