In this work we propose using molecular dynamic simulations a method to harvest liquid water from vapor using carbon nanocones. The condensation occurs due to the presence of hydrophilic sites at the nanocone entrance. The functionalization together with the high mobility of water inside nanostructures leads to fast water flow through the nanostructure. We show that this device is able to collect water if the surface fuctionalization is properly selected.
