Abstract

We developed a novel measurement method of dielectric constant of liquids in 101-103 nm space (extended-nano space). Using our streaming potential system [1], dielectric constant was measured by regarding an extended-nano channel as an electric circuit. We revealed that the dielectric constant of water in extended-nano space was dramatically decreased (approximately 1/4 in 580 nm channel compared to the bulk). The obtained unique results will be important information for unique reaction in extended-nano space, and this tool will contribute novel reaction analysis systems.
