We report the initial findings of 100 ns molecular dynamics simulations of the role of cellular membranes in general anaesthesia. The effect of xenon on hydrated dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine bilayers is described. The xenon atoms were found to prefer the interfacial and central regions of the bilayer. The presence of xenon was observed to lead to a small(More)
We use Monte Carlo algorithms to simulate, on the atomistic scale, the structure and rigidity of model linear dendronised polymers (LDPs) consisting of a poly(para-phenylene) backbone with laterally substituted Fréchet type dendritic units. A coarse-grained representation of united atoms interacting via steric repulsions is employed for the study of the(More)
