Abstract:

The effect of an external charge on water transportation through T-shaped carbon nanotubes is tested by molecular dynamics simulations.The simulation results show that a relatively small charge reduces the water flux through the canbon nanotubes,but a large enough charge prompts the water transportation.This finding may be helpful to biological amplifiers and nanodevices researches.

Key words: External charge, T-shaped nanotube, Water transportation
