Silicon carbide nanotube as a chloride-selective channel

Hilder, Tamsyn; Yang, Rui; Gordon, Daniel; Rendell, Alistair; Chung, Shin-Ho


Using several computational techniques, we examine the conduction of water and ions through single-wall nanotubes of various radii, constructed from silicon carbide (SiC). In particular, using classical molecular dynamics, we examine the rate of water and ion conduction through the (5, 5), (6, 6), and (7, 7) SiC nanotubes 36 Å in length. We then determine the current-voltage-concentration profiles using distributional molecular dynamics. The (5, 5) SiC nanotube rejects all ions and conducts...[Show more]
