Ion Interactions with the Carbon Nanotube Surface in Aqueous Solutions: Understanding the Molecular Mechanisms



We study the molecular mechanisms of alkali halide ion interactions with the single-wall carbon nanotube surface in water by means of fully atomistic molecular dynamics simulations. We focus on the basic physical-chemical principles of ion–nanotube interactions in aqueous solutions and discuss them in light of recent experimental findings on selective ion effects on carbon nanotubes.
