Driving a Buckyball by Inserting a Single Water Molecule

Caption: This shows the structure of a single water molecule imprisoned inside a fullerene C60 at equilibrium (left), and projection trajectories of the encapsulated H2O molecule (mass center) within one period for steady-state transport of H2O@C60 under an electric intensity of 0.05 V/Å(right).
