  journal={arXiv: Materials Science},
In most applications of nanoporous materials the pore structure is as important as the chemical composition as a determinant of performance. For example, one can alter performance in applications like carbon capture or methane storage by orders of magnitude by only modifying the pore structure (1,2). For these applications it is therefore important to identify the optimal pore geometry and use this information to find similar materials. However, the mathematical language and tools to identify…

A new topological descriptor for water network structure

It is demonstrated that the L1NPI formalism is suitable for the analysis of systems where the number of molecules varies by at least a factor of 10, and presented a perspective on the use of L1NPIs and other persistent homology techniques as a descriptor for water solubility.
