Thermofluid Dynamics in Nanospace

The unique hollow structure of carbon nanotubes offer possibility for quasi-one-dimensional mass transport of fluids using the interior. This can be applied for filter membranes (purification, desalination), gas chromatography, templates for synthesizing new 1-D materials, etc. A challenge is to understand the mass transport in nanospace that can be very different from continuum theories.
