The predicted high sensitivity of the nuclear modification factor for K– in SIDIS due to the QCD based effect of medium-induced flavour conversion in the fragmentation function is studied at HERMES experiment. Unlike π+, π– and K+ nuclear modification factor for K– is assumed to increase at high value of Bjorken variable xB and a hadron fraction energy z. The experimental signature of this phenomenon is an enhanced K– nuclear modification factor compared with those of K+ for high xB and z range. The z spectra of nuclear attenuation ratios for charged kaons in different slices of xB extracted on Ne, Kr and Xe targets will be presented and discussed.
