In this study, we used high temperature molecular dynamics simulation (400 K), because it is known that critical fluctuations of lipid membranes can even occur at 313 K and especially above 343 K the interlamellar water layer thickness starts to increase non-linearly due to "hydration force". We implemented this method to emphasize POPC and POPE (palmitoyl-oleoyl-phosphatidylethanolamine) membrane bilayer stability enhanced with single-wall carbon nanotube.
