In the present work, water molecules confined inside single-walled silicon carbide nanotubes (SiCNTs) are studied using density functional theory calculations. A set of periodic boundary condition models are established for segments of single-file water chains, infinite single-file water chains, and infinite multifiled water networks encapsulated within the periodic armchair and zigzag SiCNTs with (5,5), (6,6), (8,0), (9,0), and (10,0) chiralities. Two hybrid density functionals with and...[Show more]
