Effect of Surface Structure on Peptide Adsorption on Soft Surfaces

preprint
revised on 28.04.2020 and posted on 29.04.2020 by David Cheung
Using molecular dynamics simulations the adsorption of peptides onto nanostructured surfaces, consisting of alternating hydrophilic-hydrophobic stripes, was investigated. The adsorption strength, calculated using metadynamics, was found to decrease as the stripe width gets smaller.
