A nanocapsule for high-effective methane storage is investigated using molecular dynamics simulation. Methane molecules are pumped into a nanocapsule via pumping and locking chambers by the K@C601+ ions moved by the electric field. When such a technique is used, the methane weight content in the nanocapsule reaches 36.4 wt%. At the methane storage stage the external thermodynamic conditions are normal. This paper presents the analysis of the processes taking place during the nanocapsule charging with methane, its storage and desorption.
