Nanoscale Fluid Transport: From Molecular Signatures to Applications

Nanoscale Fluid Transport: From Molecular Signatures to Applications
Springer | Chemistry | October 31, 2016 | ISBN-10: 3319470027 | 86 pages | pdf | 3.04 mb
Authors: Ho, Tuan Anh
Nominated as an outstanding PhD thesis by University College London, UK and the University of Oklahoma, USA
Provides a comprehensive overview of nanoscale fluid transport and its importance in the practical applications of water desalination, shale gas, energy storage, and fluid transport
Highlights several examples concerning the molecular signatures of macroscopic observations

This thesis demonstrates how molecular modeling techniques can be used to gain significant insights into numerous applications that are increasingly attracting research interest because of their societal importance. It presents innovative ideas that, by altering the fundamental physical phenomena occurring at the solid/liquid interface, allow the fluid transport in nanochannels to be manipulated so as to improve the performance of the practical applications. The applications explicitly considered in this thesis are the design of drag-reducing and self-cleaning surfaces; water desalination; and shale gas exploration - all of which are, to some extent, governed by nanoscale fluid transport. Overall, this thesis is useful for students and researchers entering the field who wish to understand how molecular modeling can improve the performance in a wide range of applications.
