Joint publication on molecular dynamics of pore diffusion of nanoparticles
Understanding diffusion of molecules or nanoparticles in pores is critical for the design of chemical reactions as well as separation processes by chromatography, adsorption, or porous membranes. Our group contributed to a recent paper that resulted from a broader collaboration within the Collaborative Research Centre CRC 1411 “Design of Particulate Products”. In this work by Andreas Baer et al., molecular dynamics was applied to determine mean diffusion coefficients of fullerenes (“buckyballs”) in slit nanopores.
