We will investigate, through classical and reactive molecular dynamics simulations, the structural and dynamical properties of nanodroplets on graphene, boron nitride and silicene substrates. In particular, we intend to investigate the wetabillity properties and nanodroplet fracture patterns under dynamical impact against the substrates.
