The Need For Theoretical Modeling

On the other hand, until recently, there was no sufficient theoretical explanation of gas adsorption in SWNTs but only guesses about this procedure. This affected badly both the understanding of the nature of these materials and the improvement of their storage capacity that ended up in a random procedure. The need for theoretical modeling was crucial because even though the experiments can inform us what is happening, only theory allows us to find out why it is happening and what will happen in similar conditions.

Concerning the gas adsorption in carbon nanotubes, the theoretical calculations can be extremely useful for understanding the elementary steps of the adsorption procedure and give an insight into the phenomenon.
