Computer simulation of the assembly of gold nanoparticles on DNA fragments via electrostatic interaction.


Using Monte Carlo simulation, we study the metallization of DNA fragments via the templating of gold nanoparticles. To represent the interaction between metal entities, a nanoparticle-nanoparticle interaction potential was derived on the basis of the many-body Gupta potential. The aggregation of the nanoparticles on the template surface is due to the… (More)
