Transportation of Hydrogen Molecules Enabled by Tortional Buckling Instability of Carbon Nanoscrolls

  • Yinjun Huang (a1) and Teng Li (a1)


Using molecular dynamics simulations, we demonstrate a transportation mechanism of hydrogen molecules enabled by the torsional buckling instability of carbon nanoscrolls. The transportation mechanism is shown to be of high efficacy and robust over a range of loading rates. The findings shed light on potential application of carbon nanoscroll based hydrogen storage.
