The properties of single-walled carbon nanotubes and carbon fullerenes in molten alkali carbonates (MACs) were studied as a function of the considered nanomaterial and the ions into the molten salt using classical molecular dynamics simulations. The adsorption and confinement in carbon nanotubes is developed by efficient interaction of carbonate ions in the inner and outer walls of the nanotubes whereas alkali cations do not show a remarkable interaction with the nanomaterial. Analogous solvation mechanisms are inferred for carbon fullerenes with large disruption of the liquid structuring of MAC at high fullerene concentrations. The solvation ability of the studied lithium–sodium–potassium carbonate eutectic mixture for both types of nanomaterials is essential for considering this fluid in the development of composite materials for advanced technological applications.
