Silica nanotubes and nanochannels are ideal systems for nanofluidic studies. It is currently possible to synthesize these materials with reasonable control of the walls' pore diameter and functionalization. Using Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), experimentalists can assess water's behavior confined in such systems and infer about the transport and structural properties. This project will use classical molecular dynamics simulations to study waterand ions confined in silica nanotubes. Analyzing the structure, diffusion, rotational, and translational dynamics, NMR's essential information can be characterized (e.g., spin transverse relaxation times). The water dynamic sover distinct nanoconfined environments within silica nanoporous will be explored. (AU)
