Detergent interactions with carbon nanotubes are of potential importance in a number of bionanotechnology applications. We investigate the interaction of lysophospholipids with single-walled carbon nanotubes via coarse-grained molecular dynamics. We present compelling evidence that the mechanism of adsorption of these detergents onto a carbon nanotube is dependent upon detergent concentration. Furthermore, the chirality of the carbon nanotube influences the detergent wrapping angle for low… CONTINUE READING
