We investigate the effective interaction mediated by salt ions between charged nanoparticles (NPs) and DNA. DNA is modeled as an infinite cylinder with a constant surface charge in an implicit solvent. Monte Carlo simulations are used to compute the free energy of the system described in the framework of the primitive model of electrolytes, which accounts… CONTINUE READING
