Herein, we employed molecular dynamics simulations to investigate the flow-induced energy harvesting through flowing three kinds of imidazolium-based ionic liquids (ILs) over single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) with diameters varied from 1.22 to 4.07 nm at temperatures ranging from 300 to 375 K.

In this work, the flow-induced voltage is investigated by driving the pure bulk roomtemperature ionic liquid (RTIL) 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium tetrafluoroborate ([Emim][BF$_{4}$]) flowing over a graphene nano-channel consisting of two parallel single-layered graphene sheets using molecular dynamics simulation for the first time. I made **oral and poster presentations** at the meeting.

The flow-induced voltage is investigated by flowing the pure [Emim][BF$_{4}$] over a graphene nano-channel consisting of two parallel single-layered graphene sheets using molecular dynamics simulation for the first time.

This work mainly focuses on exploring the phenomenon of the voltage generation by driving a nano-sized droplet of room temperature ionic liquids moving along the monolayer graphene sheet using the molecular dynamics simulations.
