Between carbon nanotube nanobrushes, water may remain ice without melting to much higher than zero degrees.

In the past, there have been many attempts to control the melting point of water by mixing it with something (Ionic liquids and gases). However, there has probably never been a case where the melting point of bulk ice has been controlled by using a solid surface such as a nano-brush.

And while there’s been a lot of research showing that water freezes inside nanotubes, it’s also new that water can be fairly stable outside of the nanotubes. Because it is outside, it can take in a large amount of water, so it is more practical. (Thermal storage materials, salt removal, etc.)

The honeycomb structure of ice dtc has been analyzed in detail in other papers. MYMT2019 TYM2019
