Transport Properties of Water−Methanol Solution through a CNT with Oscillating Electric Field

What is it about?

Molecular dynamics simulations were used to investigate the transport properties of water−methanol solution getting through a carbon nanotube (CNT) with an oscillating electric field. Eight alternating electric fields with different oscillation periods were used in this work.

Why is it important?

the oscillating period of electric field affects the van der Waals interaction of the solution inside the CNT and the shell of the CNT, which results in the change in the number of hydrogen bonds in the water−methanol solution confined in the CNT
