This article presents a theoretical study of the efficiency, selectivity and resolution of ionic separation in nanofluidic channels. The separation of ionic and neutral solutes can be implemented in both pressure-driven and electric field-driven nanochannel flows. Such separation is attributed to the strong electrostatic interactions between ionic solutes and inherently charged channel walls.
