Molecular communication is becoming an important approach for nanoscale communication. More and more researchers come into this field to promote the development of molecular communication. In molecular communication, as an important modulation technique, concentration modulation can largely introduce the inter symbol interference(ISI), especially applied to macroscale molecular communication. In this paper, we combine concentration modulation with molecular shift keying(MoSK) techniques, and the attributes of acid, bases and salts to propose a more effective methods to immigrate the ISI of molecular communication, which can be used to design a better macroscale molecular communication test bed.
