The formation of low-dimensional inorganic nanotube crystallites in carbon nanotubes.

Abstract:

The filling of carbon nanotubes, which vary in diameter and morphology, is directly observed by molecular dynamics computer simulation with a potential model which thermodynamically favors a four-coordinate bulk crystal structure. Inorganic nanotube (INT) structures form which are based on percolating hexagonal nets. For small carbon nanotube diameters the filling is shown to proceed via an "internal wetting" mechanism, which depends on the internal carbon nanotube area rather than the free v...
