Spontaneous Formation of One-Dimensional Hydrogen Gas Hydrate in Carbon Nanotubes
About the Cover: Molecular dynamics simulation of one-dimensional (1D) H2 hydrates: Here each ice polygonal nanotube (red-white balls) formed within a carbon nanotube (gray balls) traps a H2 wire (pink balls), contrary to conventional 3D H2 hydrates where one to two H2 molecules are trapped in isolated cages.
