    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    We report preliminary molecular dynamics simulations results for platinum atoms confined between two parallel graphite surfaces. The system shows phase transition characteristics corresponding to a second order transition. Significant structural changes are also observed in the range of temperature studied. We have also investigated the effects of two different Pt-wall interaction potentials: the 9-3 form suggested by Crowell and the 10-4 form originally proposed by Steele. The results show that the two systems have rather different structural characteristics but similar thermodynamic behaviour.
