We study the morphology of polymer-coated nanopores as a function of their geometry, chain length, grafting density and solubility.

We then consider the transport of small ions through polyelectrolytemodified nanopores. Finally, we discuss the effects of pore morphology, hydrophobicity and electrostatics on the transport of nanoparticles through the nuclear pore complex of cells.
