Because of its high conductivity and unique transfer mechanism, the proton plays a key role in many chemical and biological processes like atmospheric reactions, photosynthesis, and hydrogen fuel cells. Most of these proton-involved processes take place in highly confined environments such as the nano-channels of Nafion membranes. Liyuan Liu studies the mechanisms of proton transfer in highly confined water.
