Selective Uptake of Copper(II)and Zinc(II)Ions Using Liposomes without Ionophores
The multilamellar vesicles (MLVs) without ionophores were applied to the separation media of Cu<SUP>2+</SUP> and Zn<SUP>2+</SUP>. Mn<SUP>2+</SUP>, Fe<SUP>2+</SUP>, Co<SUP>2+</SUP> and Ni<SUP>2+</SUP> were impermeable into the MLVs. The uptake rate and efficiency of Cu<SUP>2+</SUP> were dependent on the charge-type of the MLVs surface, while the effect of copper salts on the uptake rate and efficiency was little observed.
