Dynamics of C 60 Molecules in Biological Membranes : Computer Simulation Studies

  title={Dynamics of C 60 Molecules in Biological Membranes : Computer Simulation Studies},
  author={Rakwoo Chang and Jumin Lee},
We have performed molecular dynamics simulations of atomistic models of C60 molecules and DMPC bilayer membranes to study the static and dynamic effects of carbon nanoparticles on biological membranes. All four C60-membrane systems were investigated representing dilute and concentrated solutions of C60 residing either inside or outside the membrane. The concentrated C60 molecules in water phase start forming an aggregated cluster. Due to its heavy mass, the cluster tends to adhere on the… CONTINUE READING
