Confinement inside nanotubes

There are two main motivations behind this research. First, endohedral filling of specific species into the hollow core of single walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) can provide a powerful method to tailor their physical properties or to elaborate new hybrid systems for fundamental and applied goals. Second, SWCNTs are unique nanochannels expected to display new phenomena of fluid and ion transport due to their molecular-size and tunable diameter, their smooth surface, their pi-orbitals interactions and their chirality-dependent properties.
