The transport of sugar was facilitated via complexation with borate ion fixed on an anion-exchange membrane. The sugar was highly distributed on the membrane and was transported by the carrier-relay mechanism. The flux across the borate ion type membrane increased with increasing concentration but became constant at a lower flux than across a chloride ion type membrane. Sugars were selectively transported and the permeability of the sugar depends on its distribution in the membrane.
