Abstract: Recently, the encapsulation of β-carotene molecules into carbon nanotubes has been achieved. In this work, we report molecular dynamics simulations and tight-binding density functional-based results for a theoretical study of the encapsulation processes. Our results show that the molecules undergo geometrical deformations when encapsulated with significant changes in their electronic structure. Based on these results, we propose a new interpretation to the changes associated with the β-carotene absorption bands experimentally observed. © 2010 Taylor & Francis.
