Understanding the Effect of Ion Concentration on Interfacial Resistance in Carbon Nanotube Membrane via Molecular Dynamics Simulation Yiru Su, Lang Liu



The influence of ions concentration and CNT diameter on the interfacial resistance for CNT membrane is revealed through molecular dynamics approach. We find that the interfacial resistance of CNT membrane is affected by ion concentration and CNT diameter, and the reduction diameter can promote the interfacial resistance with the increase of ion concentration. The presence of ions in the system results in the increase of entrance-exit resistance and flange resistance composing the interfacial resistance.
