Carbon Nanotubes as Water Carriers
"A key step for developing novel nanomedicine technologies consists in delivering small amounts of aqueous solutions through the hollow interior of carbon nanotubes," Professor Alberto Striolo explains to Nanowerk.
"The properties of water, structure and dynamics, for example, are expected to change dramatically when bulk water is confined within nanotubes whose diameter is of the same order of magnitude as the size of one water molecule," he adds.
