The interactions between charged nanoparticles (NPs) and charge-neutral phospholipid membranes are investigated by coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulations. Three kinds of nanoparticles are modeled with different surface charge densities: the uncharged one, the positively charged one, and the negatively charged one. We find that the electrostatic attraction improves the adhesion of a charged nanoparticle to the membrane. With the increase of electrostatic energy, a charged NP can be almost… CONTINUE READING
