Scholarcy highlights

  • It is important to investigate how to enhance the flow rate of single-file water molecules across nanochannels
  • the existing methods are based on pressure gradients
  • these methods are all based on exogenous tools
  • We find that the flow rate of the single-file water molecules
  • across SWCNT A is enhanced for the case of unblocked SWCNT B compared with the rate
  • that this flow rate is determined by the separation between the two SWCNTs
