The excess entropy of fluids has been shown to play a decisive role in the determination of dynamical properties [Y. Rosenfeld, Phys. Rev. A 15, 2545 (1977)]. We argue that it could play an equally important role in connecting dynamical properties of atomistic and coarse-grained models of molecular fluid systems. Molecular dynamics simulations for an(More)
We investigate the structure of the [bmim][Tf(2)N]/silica interface by simulating the indentation of a thin (4 nm) [bmim][Tf(2)N] film by a hard nanometric tip. The ionic liquid/silica interface is represented in atomistic detail, while the tip is modelled by a spherical mesoscopic particle interacting via an effective short-range potential. Plots of the(More)
