Fullerene cluster between graphite walls —Computer simulation

Accepted: 23 April 2002
The dynamical properties of the small fullerene cluster , confined between two parallel graphite walls, have been studied using a molecular-dynamics (MD) simulation method. An interesting instance of behaviour of molecules in this environment has been discovered. For a range of distances d between the graphite walls the fullerenes form two monolayers parallel to the graphite surfaces (no migration of molecules between layers). The monolayers slide one against the other and perform a torsional motion.
