Channeling of mobility: A new method for the direct measurement of proton mobilities based on a pH-sensitive fluorescence probe is described. The results verify the enhancement of proton mobility in two-dimensional extended nanospace channels and contribute to a deeper understanding of ion-transport processes inside nanochannels.
