Abstract

Because of their strong hydrophilicity, nanoporous silica materials are good candidates for humidity sensor applications. We employed molecular modeling to investigate the water behavior when confined in such materials in order to refine the design of the next generation of devices. We focused in this work on the mechanical behavior of those porous silica materials.
