Molecular dynamics simulations were performed, in the physiological condition (300 K and 1 atm), on nanotube segments of various diameters submerged in water. The results show that water molecules can exist inside the nanotube segments, and,most importantly, the water molecules inside the tubes tend to organize themselves into a highly hydrogenbonded network, i.e., solid-like wrapped-around ice sheets. The disorder-to-order transition of these ice-sheets can be achieved purely by tuning the… CONTINUE READING
