This report summarizes the work completed under the Laboratory Directed Research
and Development (LDRD) project 10-0973 of the same title. Understanding the
molecular origin of the no-slip boundary condition remains vitally important for
understanding molecular transport in biological, environmental and energy-related
processes, with broad technological implications. Moreover, the viscoelastic
properties of fluids in nanoconfinement or near surfaces are not well-understood. We
have critically reviewed progress in this area, evaluated key experimental and
theoretical methods, and made unique and important discoveries addressing these and
related scientific questions. Thematically, the discoveries include insight into the
orientation of water molecules on metal surfaces, the premelting of ice, the nucleation
of water and alcohol vapors between surface asperities and the lubricity of these
molecules when confined inside nanopores, the influence of water nucleation on
adhesion to salts and silicates, and the growth and superplasticity of NaCl nanowires.
Here’s what’s next.
