A study was conducted on the processes of nucleation of liquid bridges and bubbles in a nanoscale cylindrical pore by using a combination of grand canonical, canonical ensemble, and gauge cell Monte Carlo (MC) simulation methods. As such, the pathways of vapor-liquid and liquid-vapor transitions were investigated and determined the nucleation mechanisms and the nucleation barriers. Simulations revealed the molecular structure of growing bridges and cavitating bubbles.
