Computer simulation of biophysical processes brings tangible benefits in cases where, because of the complexity and cost of the experiment turns out to be useful to obtain preliminary estimates for the selection of optimal ways of its production. In other words, computer simulation represents a third way of solving problems of great theoretical and technological importance.
Creating a particle flux directed nanotube can be used as a way to deliver chemicals into biological cell structures . Nanotubes can be considered as molecular overpasses designed to transport to the reaction zone the necessary reagents, which is impossible with the same accuracy as do other methods. In particular, it is important to know the regularities of the interaction of carbon nanotubes with the cell membrane. All these problems must be solved with the use of a preliminary analysis by computer simulation
In the paper by means of computer simulations on the example of glucose, analyzes some of the issues of accumulation of organic molecular structures in carbon nanotubes. In modeling revealed the phenomenon of structuring - ordering of molecules, in this case glucose molecules inside carbon nanotubes because of the specific rotation of carbon atoms (chiral). A model of the interaction with carbon nanotubes and other organic partitions.
