D-penicillamine is one of the disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs). Drug-induced pemphigus is not fre-quently associated with D-penicillamine, and to date, the number of reported cases is about a hundred. Most reports of D-penicillamine-induced pemphigus vulgaris are in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. It has rarely been reported in patients(More)
Our recently developed molecular dynamics simulation method for simulating fluids confined in nanometric pores [Eslami et al. J. Chem. Phys.2008, 129, 194702] is employed to simulate nanoconfined polyamide-6,6+water in contact with graphene monolayers. In this work, a number of dry and wet polymer samples, containing 3 and 6 wt % water at 350 K, confined in(More)
In this work, our previous simulation method on the calculation of solubility of nonpolar solutes in nonpolar polymers [H. Eslami and F. Müller-Plathe, Macromolecules 40, 6413 (2007)] has been extended to the case of solubility calculation for water, as a polar penetrant, in poly(ethylene terephthalate), as a polar polymer. The chemical potentials of water(More)
Grand canonical ensemble molecular dynamics simulation is employed to calculate the solubility of water in polyamide-6,6. It is shown that performing two separate simulations, one in the polymeric phase and one in the gaseous phase, is sufficient to find the phase coexistence point. In this method, the chemical potential of water in the polymer phase is(More)
An extended system Hamiltonian is proposed to perform molecular dynamics (MD) simulation in the grand canonical ensemble. The Hamiltonian is similar to the one proposed by Lynch and Pettitt (Lynch and Pettitt, J Chem Phys 1997, 107, 8594), which consists of the kinetic and potential energies for real and fractional particles as well as the kinetic and(More)
A coarse-grained (CG) model for the simulation of nanoconfined water between graphene surfaces is developed. For this purpose, mixed-grained simulations are done, in which the two-site water model of Riniker and van Gunsteren [S. Riniker, W. F. van Gunsteren, J. Chem. Phys. 2011, 134, 084110] is simulated between atomistically resolved graphene surfaces. In(More)
White sponge nevus is a rare autosomal dominant hereditary disorder manifesting upon physical examination as white symmetric, diffuse, thickened, corrugated or velvety plaques on the oral, esophageal or genital mucosa. They are also found to be bilateral and asymptomatic. The tissue changes can be present at birth or manifest during childhood or(More)
A method for performing molecular dynamics simulation in the grand canonical ensemble is developed. The molecular dynamics, with coupling to an external bath, simulation method of [Berendsen et al., J. Chem. Phys. 81, 3684 (1984)] is extended for this purpose. Here the physical system of interest consists of real indistinguishable particles plus one(More)
A molecular dynamics simulation method with coupling to an external bath is used to simulate polyamide-6,6 trimers confined between graphite surfaces. In this simulation method, the temperature and the parallel component of pressure are kept fixed, and the distance between the confining graphite surfaces is changed to achieve equilibrium. The simulation(More)
