Two complementary models of the hindered rotation of interstitial H2 in a nanotube bundle are presented. Both models employ traditional approximations concerning the force laws, supplemented by results of ab initio calculations of the electrostatic field. The models yield similar results, consistent with the experimental observation of a large rotational barrier.
