A novel biomimetic voltage-gated chloride nanochannel is described. This artificial nanochannel can realize reversible switching between the "on" and "off" states upon addition and removal of Cl- and can realize the selective and directional transport of Cl- driven by voltage. Moreover, it also has high sensitivity, good selectivity, responsive switchability, and good stability. (Wiley Online Library)
