This content is a preprint and has not undergone peer review at the time of posting.


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.
