|Title:||beta-Carotene encapsulation into single-walled carbon nanotubes: a theoretical study|
|Abstract:||Recently, the encapsulation of -carotene molecules into carbon nanotubes has been achieved. In this work, we report molecular dynamics simulations and tight-binding density functional-based results for a theoretical study of the encapsulation processes. Our results show that the molecules undergo geometrical deformations when encapsulated with significant changes in their electronic structure. Based on these results, we propose a new interpretation to the changes associated with the -carotene absorption bands experimentally observed.|
