‘Chair–boat’ transitions and side groups affect the stiffness of polysaccharides

Abstract

Ž . Ž . Ž . Atomic force microscopy experiments with individual b1,4 -glucose polymers cellulose and a1,4 -glucose polymers Ž . amylose have been simulated by molecular dynamics stretching simulations, and forcerextension curves were calculated. ̊ For forces above 1200 pN, we predict a stiffness of 5100 pNrA for both polymers. In contrast to b-glucose, a… (More)
