Nanotechnology Animation

Open ended single walled carbon nanotubes are ideal model systems that resemble in shape and size to the pores in biological macromolecules. Simulations of nanotubes in aqueous environments can provide insights into thermydynamics and transport of small solutes in confined geometries.
