Abstract

In this study, the transport property of a water droplet in the nano hydrophobic pore was clarified by molecular dynamics simulation. The size dependence of the transport property of the water droplet in a nano slit pore was focused. Considering several models of the nano pore, the differences of the structures of water droplets were shown and these differences were discussed from the viewpoint of the interaction between hydrophobic walls. Furthermore, forces by the hydrophobic walls were evaluated. From these results, the dependence of the width of the pore and the size of the droplet were clarified. Moreover, the effect of the liquid-vapor interface was considered.
