Abnormal fluid flux dynamics through nanocapillaries


The phenomenon of rapid water flow observed in carbon nanostructures, including carbon nanotubes and graphene nanocapillaries, has long presented a significant challenge in the field of nanofluidics. Recent progress in the fabrication of graphene-based nanocapillaries has facilitated precise measurements of water flux through nanostructures of diverse sizes, offering invaluable insights into this intriguing occurrence. Using both theoretical models and actual data, we discuss the dynamics of rapid water flow in carbon nanostructures in this presentation.  We begin by discussing the historical background and significance of this phenomena, highlighting important discoveries from past research in the area.  Specifically, we go over our recent works on computational modeling that clarify many elements of fluid confinement in nanochannels, including the way fluids interact with confining walls. Recent advances in the subject have greatly improved our comprehension of relevant processes, opening the door for the creation of novel tools and uses for the science of nanofluidics.
