Abstract

The unit cell structure and relative stability of ice nanotubes built from n-gonal rings of water were computationally studied. Four nanotubes were examined, referred to as square, pentagonal, hexagonal, and octagonal, depending on the number of stacked n-gons. The data obtained indicate that among these nanotubules, the pentagonal or hexagonal ice nanotube is the most stable.
